Application of a biodegradable macromolecular contrast agent in dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI for assessing the efficacy of indocyanine green-enhanced photothermal cancer therapy.

Abstract

PURPOSE To investigate the effectiveness of a polydisulfide-based biodegradable macromolecular contrast agent, (Gd-DTPA)-cystamine copolymers (GDCC), in assessing the efficacy of indocyanine green-enhanced photothermal cancer therapy using dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Breast cancer xenografts in… (More)
