Dual T1/T2 MRI contrast agent based on hybrid SPION@coordination polymer nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a novel hybrid T1/T2 dual MRI contrast agent by the encapsulation of SPIONs (T2 contrast agent) into an iron-based coordination polymer with T1-weighted signal. This new hybrid material presents improved relaxometry and low cytotoxicity, which make it suitable for its use as contrast agent for MRI.
