Mesoporous silica nanospheres as highly efficient MRI contrast agents.

Abstract

Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive diagnostic tool that not only provides high resolution anatomical images of soft tissue but also quantitatively assesses disease pathogenesis by measuring up-regulated biomarkers. However, currently used MRI contrast agents are mainly small molecule gadolinium chelates that lack sensitivity… (More)
