As part of the School of Science and Technology Joint seminar programme for the Engineering and Materials and Computing and Informatics Research Centres, Edwin Abdurakman, NTU presents: Physics Seminar: Microbubbles as pressure-sensitive MRI contrast agents.

Abstract

Gas-filled microbubbles are useful as a pressure probe for MRI. These microbubbles create size-dependent magnetic perturbation in their immediate vicinity which alters the measured MR signal. The novel work we will present focuses on demonstrating (in-vitro and in-vivo) the microbubbles entrapped in alginate spheres can be used as a contrast agent to measure pressure variations in the human stomach.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Martin Bencsik/ Dr Christopher Castleton.

All welcome.
