Skill Level: Basic to Intermediate

Session Number: W-07

Overview
An overview of methods and applications of MR based cell tracking methods using contrast agents or bioorganic contrast enhancement. Mechanisms based on gadolinium, super-paramagnetic ion, fluorine, and methods based on chemical exchange saturation transfer are discussed. The current and future clinical applications are also discussed.

Target Audience
