The scope of MRI is expanding with the development of both ultrahigh field (14 T) and ultralow field (1 mT) scanners for biomedical applications. In addition, entirely new types of magnetic imaging modalities are being developed, including magnetic particle imaging (MPI), EPR-enhanced MRI, and optical detection of EPR in nanoparticles, to name a few examples. These advances will enable the development of new types of magnetic imaging agents that are useful not only for image enhancement but may have molecular and functional imaging capabilities, as well. We are interested in proposals that address their development as well as the development of the new instrumentation necessary for in-vivo imaging applications.
