A novel fluorinated probe for medical imaging

Abstract:

Medical imaging is an important area of scientific research with the principle aim of accurately diagnosing diseases to guide more effective treatment. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides advantageous high spatial resolution and deep tissue visualization. However, 1H MRI can suffer from low signal-to-noise ratios due to strong background signals from abundant, endogenous molecules such as water and fat. 19F MRI overcomes this drawback by directly detecting admin...
