Abstract

This paper discusses the types of paramagnetic agents available for clinical brain imaging and reviews investigations that have sought to optimize the use of these agents by varying the administered dose, delaying the imaging time after contrast administration, and altering image contrast by using magnetization transfer saturation pulses.
