Professor Steve Conolly’s lab continues it’s push to make Magnetic Particle Imaging a reality with four first-in-animal demonstrations published this year.
- First MPI Pulmonary Embolism (lung perfusion), with UCSF pulmonologist Payam Nahid, MD, comparable to ventilation–perfusion (VQ) scan
- First MPI cancer detection with LodeSpin/UW particles seen via enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect
- First MPI Traumatic Brain Injury detection with LodeSpin/UW particless following trauma, jointly with Professor Daniela Kaufer’s lab
- First in vivo MPI stem cell tracking with 200-cell linear detection in the lungs, jointly work with Professor David Schaffer
