Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI has become increasingly popular in diagnostic imaging medicine and its application has been growing rapidly in recent years. MRI belongs to non-invasive medical imaging technique and is commonly used for early diagnosis of various diseases such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, brain degeneration, and senile spinal tuberculosis. Its application has been increasing with the development of imaging technology and instruments. Our company developed a new contrast agent using PEG surface modified iron oxide nanoparticle (IOP Injection) to target cells. After the cells have been transplanted into the body, MRI can be used to track the distribution, movement, and location of the cells. This enables the scientists and doctors to track and understand the safety and movement of cells after the transplant. In addition, IOP Injection can also be used to label immunocytes including T-lymphocyte, macrophage and dendritic cell. IOP Injection can selectively calibrate the T-cell in vivo, providing excellent cellular MRI tracking images. This contributes greatly to regenerative medicine and inflammatory disease in the future.
