Quantitative analysis of left ventricular performance from sequences of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging using active mesh model.

Comput Med Imaging Graph. 2009 Apr;33(3):222-34.

Comput Med Imaging Graph.

In this study, the local and global left ventricular function are estimated by fitting three-dimensional active mesh model (3D-AMM) to the initial sparse displacement which is measured from an establishing point correspondence procedure. To evaluate the performance of the algorithm, eight image sequences were used and the results were compared with those reported by other researchers. The findings were consistent with previously published values and the clinical evidence as well. The results demonstrated the superiority of the novel strategy with respect to formerly presented algorithm reported by author et al. Furthermore, the results are comparable to the current state-of-the-art methods.

natural background radiation dosimetry in the highest altitude region of Iran.

J Radiat Res. 2003 Sep;44(3):285-7.

J Radiat Res.

The natural background radiation has been measured in one of the highest altitude regions (Zagros Mountains), Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, in the south west of Iran. The outdoors-environmental monitoring exposure rate of radiation was measured in 200 randomly chosen regions using portable Geiger-Muller and scintillation detectors. Eight measurements were made in each region and an average value was used to calculate the exposure rate from natural background radiation. The average exposure rate was found to be 0.246 microGy/h and the annual average effective dose equivalent was found to be 0.49 mSv. An overall population-weighted mean outdoor dose rate was calculated to be 49 nGy/h, which is higher than the world-wide mean value of 44 nGy/h, as reported by UNSCEAR in 1998, and is comparable to the annual effective dose equivalent of 0.38 mSv. A good correlation between the altitude and the exposure rate was observed, as the higher altitude regions have higher natural background radiation levels.

In vitro studies of gadolinium-DTPA conjugated with monoclonal antibodies as cancer-specific magnetic resonance imaging contrast agents.

Australas Phys Eng Sci Med. 2002 Mar;25(1):31-8.

Australas Phys Eng Sci Med

The monoclonal antibodies, 9.2.27 against human melanoma cell lines and WM53 against leukemia cell lines, were conjugated with cyclic anhydride gadolinium-diethylenetriaminepenta-acetic acid (Gd-cDTPAa) and used as tumor-specific contrast agents in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The data indicate that Gd-DTPA-9.2.27 in solution decreased the T1 relaxation of water protons at 7.0 Tesla (300 MHz) in direct proportion to the gadolinium concentration, and this effect was greater than in Gd-DTPA solutions. These conjugates show high specificity for melanoma and leukemia cell lines. T1 relaxation time at 7.0 Tesla, measured for the melanoma cell line (MM-138) and leukemia cell line (HL-60) after incubation at 37 degrees C for 4 hr, were significantly decreased (approximately 25%) relative to controls. The gadolinium concentration in cells and washing solutions was measured by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES). A linear relationship was observed between T1 relaxation rates and gadolinium concentrations obtained by ICP-AES. The ICP-AES results showed no gadolinium uptake in the non-targeted HT-29 colorectal cancer cells

In vitro study of relationship between signal intensity and Gd-DTPA concentration at high magnetic field strength.

Australas Radiol. 2001 Aug;45(3):298-304

Australasian Radilology

Although gadolinium-diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA) has been used as a contrast material in MRI, it is known that the contrast enhancement effect is not uniform for high concentrations of Gd-DTPA. In order to evaluate the proper pulse sequences for dynamic MRI in aqueous solutions of Gd-DTPA, blood samples and melanoma cells, the signal intensity for several concentrations of Gd-DTPA were measured under inversion recovery (T1-weighted) at high magnetic field strength (7.0 Tesla). For aqueous solutions of Gd-DTPA, signal intensity correlated linearly with the concentration of Gd-DTPA between 0 mmol/L and 4 mmol/L. Using blood and melanoma cells, signal intensity correlated non-linearly with the concentration of Gd-DTPA between 0 mmol/L and 1.5 mmol/L. For concentrations of more than 4 mmol/L in aqueous solutions of Gd-DTPA, 1 mmol/L in blood and 1.5 mmol/L in melanoma, signal intensity decreased with increased Gd-DTPA concentration

In vivo studies of Gd-DTPA-monoclonal antibody and Gd-porphyrins: potential MR imaging contrast agents for cancer.

J Magn Reson Imaging. 2001 Aug;14(2):169-74.

Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imagin

New tumour-specific contrast agents for clinical imaging and therapy for cancer are required. To this end Gd-H (Gd-hematoporphyrin), Gd-TCP (Gd-tetra-carboranylmethoxyphenyl-porphyrin), Gd DTPA-WM53, and Gd-DTPA-9.2.27 are synthesised and applied to nude mice with human melanoma (MM-138) xenografts in nude mice. The biodistribution, T1 relaxation times and MR image signal enhancement of the contrast agents are presented and compared. A specific and significant (20%) modification in T1 relaxation times of water in human melanoma tumour xenografts was revealed 24-hr after injection of Gd-DTPA-9.2.27. The percent of injected antibody or gadolinium that localised to the tumour was measured by ICP-AES to be approximately 35%. A higher concentration of gadolinium was achieved compared with non-specific compounds indicating selective delivery of Gd-DTPA-9.2.27 to the melanoma xenografts. Porphyrin based contrast agents (Gd H and Gd-TCP) also showed significant uptake in melanomas. The uptake of Gd TCP by the tumour was sufficient to deliver boron atoms into the tumour, making possible it’s the dual use for both MR imaging and boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT). The linear relationship between the paramagnetic contribution to the relaxation rates and contrast agent concentration making possible quantitative studies of paramagnetic contrast agent uptake.
