WEBINAR: Novel Nanoparticle-based Contrast Agents for Preclinical MRI Studies at 1T: Research Applications in Placental Disorders

This webinar considered a new class of targeted, liposomal-gadolinium MRI contrast agents that do not cross the placental barrier for preclinical studies of placental vascular architecture and placental accreta, or invasive placentation. These studies are conducted on a 1T permanent magnet MRI instrument which has high sensitivity for this gadolinium-based contrast

Cancer Biology and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): The Gold Standard of Soft Tissue Imaging

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique that utilizes magnetic fields to create images of the anatomy and the physiological processes within the body. Specifically, MRI, the gold standard in soft tissue imaging, offers researchers the ability to distinctly contrast between normal and pathological tissue. When it comes to the strengths of MRI in

Is 1 tesla enough: How low-field MRI is permitting more preclinical researchers to utilize this gold standard technique than ever before

In my day to day interactions, I come across numerous researchers who are not able to fully utilize MRI systems as they would like or cannot see themselves using this technology even though it could immensely help their research. The reasons for this are numerous but often fall into 1 of 3 categories. Price
