Hyperpolarized MRI Technology Resource Center

The HMTRC is a Center dedicated to the development of state-of-the-art imaging techniques, particularly on instrument that will use Carbon-13 based compounds. This center aimed at disseminating optimal new hyperpolarized (HP) 13C MR technologies with optimal training/documentation to advance these emerging molecular imaging methods. Hyperpolarized 13C MR has outstanding research and clinical value, however most aspects of this technology (instrumentation, agent chemistry, DNP/dissolution methodology, MR acquisition, and data analysis) are currently suboptimal and require focused technological development to realize their full potential. This center includes three Technology Research & Development (TR&D) projects led by experienced hyperpolarized MR researchers.
