Hyperpolariser MRI

June 4, 2020

Hyperpolarised carbon-13 MRI is a functional medical imaging technique for probing perfusion and metabolism using injected substrates. It is enabled by techniques for hyperpolarisation of carbon-13-containing molecules using dynamic nuclear polarization and rapid dissolution to create an injectable solution. Hyperpolarised carbon-13 MRI provides chemical as well as spatial information, allowing this technique to be used to probe the activity of specific metabolic pathways.
