MRI Contrast Agents – More Information
http://www.macrocyclics.com/data/MRI-Contrast-Agents.html
Contrast Agents for Magnetic Resonance Imaging have been in use for the past 10 years. These agents improve the resolution of MRI images by increasing the brightness in various parts of the body where the agent resides. Most contrast agents that have been approved for human use are extra cellular, Gadolinium-based agents that have a relatively short residence time in the vascular system. More recently, intracellular agents have been introduced that have longer residence times and allow extended imaging procedures without the need for repeated injections of the agent. Is that good or bad?

South Korean scientists have developed a MRI contrast agent using manganese oxide nanoparticles. The researchers at Seoul National University note conventional gadolinium complexes used as MRI contrast agents cannot reveal anatomic structures. But the newly developed nanoparticles produced images of the anatomic structures of mouse brains that are as clear as those obtained by histological examination.
