mri contrast

You may one day have to get two MRI contrast agents injected when you go for your MRI scan. 

Researchers at the Imaging Resource Core at the Case Western School of Medicine are developing the method of dual contrast when it comes to getting scanned. The researchers aim for this dual contrast is to better specify molecules, proteins, and tissue when undergoing a scan. The more you can distinct and specify, the more likely you can accurately diagnose. 

For this study, the two agents used were gadolinium (which we have mentioned before) and manganese. These two agents differ when it comes to relaxivity rate, or the ability to easily emit signals and fluctuation of the contrast agent. This allows the two contrast agents to appear distinct when scanning. 

The researchers are still in preliminary stages and will need to further test on living cells in the future. 

At Sound Imaging, we are always proud to see how the imaging field aims to improve upon itself. We aim to do this as well at Sound Imaging. This is why we newly re-designed our MRI Stereo and work to create the most upgraded version of MRI Visors
