On Possible Pitfalls in Working on SPIO Labelled Cells with 2 D UTE Sequences

Introduction In the past years many strategies for the in-vivo detection of cells have been proposed. Many of these approaches are based on superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) nanoparticles to overcome the inherent low sensitivity of MRI to common T1 based contrast agents [1]. In addition new pulse sequences were introduced to gain positive contrast out of… CONTINUE READING
