Non-invasive immuno-metabolic cardiac inflammation imaging using hyperpolarized magnetic resonance
Rationale: Current cardiovascular clinical imaging techniques offer only limited assessment of innate immune cell driven inflammation, which is a potential therapeutic target in myocardial infarction (MI) and other diseases. Hyperpolarized magnetic resonance (MR) is an emerging imaging technology that generates contrast agents with 10-20,000 fold improvements in MR signal, enabling cardiac metabolite mapping. Objective: To determine whether hyperpolarized MR using [1-13C]pyruvate can assess t...Expand abstract
