Nanoparticles make better MRI images

Abstract:
Manganese oxide nanoparticles have been used as contrast agent for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), allowing researchers to see inside living brains in the same detail as dissected tissue under a microscope.

The team, led by Taeghwan Hyeon of Seoul National University in South Korea, say that this is the first biocompatible nanoparticle MRI contrast agent - it is also effective for liver, kidney and spinal imaging.
