Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) produces high-resolution three-dimensional maps delineating morphological features of the specimen. Differential contrast in soft tissues depends on endogenous differences in water content, relaxation times, and/or diffusion characteristics of the tissue of interest. The specificity of MRI can be further increased by exogenous contrast agents (CA) such as gadolinium chelates, which have been successfully used for imaging of hemodynamic parameters including blood… CONTINUE READING
