Physical mechanism and applications of CEST contrast agents

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The imaging of cells with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) requires some magnetic labeling strategy that allows the discrimination between labeled cells and their surroundings. To date, there are two major classes of MR contrast agents, paramagnetic agents, producing large positive signal enhancement from decreasing T.
