Tracking immune cells in vivo using magnetic resonance imaging

  title={Tracking immune cells in vivo using magnetic resonance imaging},
  author={Eric T. Ahrens and Jeff W M Bulte},
  journal={Nature Reviews Immunology},
The increasing complexity of in vivo imaging technologies, coupled with the development of cell therapies, has fuelled a revolution in immune cell tracking in vivo. Powerful magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods are now being developed that use iron oxide- and 19F-based probes. These MRI technologies can be used for image-guided immune cell delivery and for the visualization of immune cell homing and engraftment, inflammation, cell physiology and gene expression. MRI-based cell tracking is… CONTINUE READING
