TmDOTP(5-) as a (23)Na shift reagent for the subcutaneously implanted 9L gliosarcoma in rats.

The use of TmDOTP(5-) as an in vivo (23)Na NMR shift reagent (SR) for subcutaneously implanted 9L gliosarcoma was evaluated. TmDOTP(5-) produced a single sharp extracellular peak after about 50-60 min of infusion, and did not cause any changes in the (31)P resonance areas or chemical shifts, suggesting that the SR is homogeneously distributed in the… CONTINUE READING
