Contrasting agent for magnetic resonance imaging based on nanostructural dispersion of Manganese derivative of phthalocyanine: preliminary investigation results

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
Contrast agents (CA) are used to increase tumor contrasting in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The work is devoted to estimation of Manganese chloride tetra-3-phenylthio-tetra-5-tert-buthylphthalocyanine [3-(PhS)4-5-(t-Bu)4PcMnCl] as potential CA for MRI. We have developed the micellar [...]

Intracellular Uptake of Folate Receptor Targeted Superparamagnetic Nanoparticles for Enhanced Tumor Detection by MRI

, , , , , , , , ,
Tumor specific superparamagnetic nanoparticle conjugates are currently being developed as targeting-contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The application of such “smart” molecular imaging probes will have a significant clinical impact as a non-invasive method [...]
