Title (EN) MAGNETIC MICROSTRUCTURES FOR MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING
(FR) MICROSTRUCTURES MAGNÉTIQUES D'IMAGERIE PAR RÉSONANCE MAGNÉTIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a magnetic resonance structure with a cavity or a reserved space that provides contrast and the additional ability to frequency-shift the spectral signature of the NMR-susceptible nuclei such as water protons by a discrete and controllable characteristic frequency shift that is unique to each MRS design. The invention also relates to nearly uniform solid magnetic resonance T2* contrast agents that have a significantly higher magnetic moment compared to similarly-sized existing MRI contrast agents.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une structure de résonance magnétique avec une cavité ou un espace réservé qui fournit un contraste et la capacité supplémentaire de décaler en fréquence la signature spectrale des noyaux susceptibles de RMN tels que les protons de l'eau par un décalage de fréquence caractéristique discret et contrôlable qui est propre à chaque conception de MRS. L'invention concerne également des agents de contraste T2* de résonance magnétique solides presque uniformes qui ont un moment magnétique très supérieur comparés aux agents de contraste de MRI existants de mêmes dimensions.
