Staff Exchange for Novel applications in 19f magnetic resonance imaging

Project description

Advancing contrast agents for MRI scans

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans produce detailed images of the organs and tissues in the body. They can also provide new insights into the biology of cell trafficking and migration. It is important to advance MRI contrast agents in order to render MRI a high-resolution and non-invasive preclinical and clinical imaging modality. The EU-funded SENATOR project will form an international and inter-sectoral network of organisations working on a joint research programme to advance contrast agents based on nanoparticles for perfluorocarbon (19F) MRI. The move towards a new generation of MRI contrast agents has been spurred on by the mounting evidence against gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs). Healthcare professionals have been advised to limit the use of GBCAs to situations in which contrast is deemed absolutely necessary.
