Uptake of a superparamagnetic contrast agent imaged by MR with high spectral and spatial resolution.

Abstract

Conventional MRI implicitly treats the proton signal as a single, narrow Lorentzian. However, water signals in vivo are often in homogeneously broadened and have multiple resolvable components. These components represent discrete populations of water molecules within each pixel which are affected differently by physiology and contrast agents. Accurate… (More)
