Ferritin, the iron storing protein, is known to darken T2-weighted MRI. This darkening can be used to non-invasively measure iron content. However, ferritin's behavior is not the same in tissue as in solution, a discrepancy that remains unexplained by the recently developed theory matching the NMR properties of ferritin solutions. A better understanding of the relaxation induced by ferritin in tissue could help for the development of new MRI protocols of iron quantification. In this short… CONTINUE READING
