Functional cerebral imaging by susceptibility-contrast NMR.


In vivo measurement of cerebral physiology by dynamic contrast-enhanced NMR is demonstrated. Time-resolved images of the cerebral transit of paramagnetic contrast agent were acquired using a new ultrafast NMR imaging technique and a novel mechanism of image contrast based on microscopic changes in tissue magnetic susceptibility. Global hypercapnia in dogs… (More)
