Selected applications of fluorinated MR contrast agents and fluorine-containing drugs in medicine
Languages of publication
This review aims to present magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) for applications in cellular therapeutics including descriptions of the use of 19F MRI and 19F MRS in drug tracking and visualization. Both MRI and MRS are often used as diagnostic tools in oncology, are non-invasive, and also can be employed for monitoring non-oncological and oncological therapies. Herin, we provide information pertaining to tracking and visualization of fluorinated drug uptake in cancer tissue in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo. The response of tissue to treatment is also discussed.
