Cryogenics free production of hyperpolarized 129Xe and 83Kr for biomedical MRI applications (2013)
Journal Article
Hughes-Riley, T., Six, J. S., Lilburn, D., Stupic, K. F., Dorkes, A. C., Shaw, D. E., …Meersmann, T. (2013). Cryogenics free production of hyperpolarized 129Xe and 83Kr for biomedical MRI applications. Journal of Magnetic Resonance, 237, doi:10.1016/j.jmr.2013.09.008. ISSN 1090-7807

As an alternative to cryogenic gas handling, hyperpolarized (hp) gas mixtures were extracted directly from the spin exchange optical pumping (SEOP) process through expansion followed by compression to ambient pressure for biomedical MRI applications.... Read More

Pulmonary MRI contrast using Surface Quadrupolar Relaxation (SQUARE) of hyperpolarized 83Kr (2013)
Journal Article
Six, J. S., Hughes-Riley, T., Lilburn, D. M., Dorkes, A. C., Stupic, K. F., Shaw, D. E., …Meersmann, T. (2014). Pulmonary MRI contrast using Surface Quadrupolar Relaxation (SQUARE) of hyperpolarized 83Kr. Magnetic Resonance Imaging, 32(1), doi:10.1016/j.mri.2013.08.007. ISSN 0730-725X

Hyperpolarized 83Kr has previously been demonstrated to enable MRI contrast that is sensitive to the chemical composition of the surface in a porous model system. Methodological advances have lead to a substantial increase in the 83Kr hyperpolarizati... Read More
