Tuning the relaxation rates of dual-mode T₁/T₂ nanoparticle contrast agents: a study into the ideal system (2015)
Journal Article
Keasberry, N. A., Bañobre-López, M., Wood, C., Stasiuk, G. J., Gallo, J., & Long, N. J. (2015). Tuning the relaxation rates of dual-mode T₁/T₂ nanoparticle contrast agents: a study into the ideal system. Nanoscale, 7(38), 16119-16128. doi:10.1039/c5nr04400f

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an excellent imaging modality. However the low sensitivity of the technique poses a challenge to achieving an accurate image of function at the molecular level. To overcome this, contrast agents are used; typically... Read More about Tuning the relaxation rates of dual-mode T₁/T₂ nanoparticle contrast agents: a study into the ideal system.

Pancreatic β-cell imaging in humans: Fiction or option? (2015)
Journal Article
Laurent, D., Vinet, L., Lamprianou, S., Daval, M., Filhoulaud, G., Ktorza, A., …Hecksher-Sørensen, J. (2016). Pancreatic β-cell imaging in humans: Fiction or option?. Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism, 18(1), 6-15. https://doi.org/10.1111/dom.12544

Diabetes mellitus is a growing worldwide epidemic disease, currently affecting 1 in 12 adults. Treatment of disease complications typically consumes ∼10% of healthcare budgets in developed societies. Whilst immune‐mediated destruction of insulin‐secr... Read More about Pancreatic β-cell imaging in humans: Fiction or option?.

Dual-modal magnetic resonance/fluorescent zinc probes for pancreatic β-cell mass imaging (2015)
Journal Article
Stasiuk, G. J., Minuzzi, F., Sae-Heng, M., Rivas, C., Juretschke, H., Piemonti, L., …Long, N. J. (2015). Dual-modal magnetic resonance/fluorescent zinc probes for pancreatic β-cell mass imaging. Chemistry : a European journal, 21(13), 5023-5033. https://doi.org/10.1002/chem.201406008

Despite the contribution of changes in pancreatic β-cell mass to the development of all forms of diabetes mellitus, few robust approaches currently exist to monitor these changes prospectively in vivo. Although magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI) provid... Read More about Dual-modal magnetic resonance/fluorescent zinc probes for pancreatic β-cell mass imaging.
