MRI @ spectroscopyNOW

The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) channel covers all aspects of magnetic resonance research and MR applications related to medicine, neuroscience, cancer research, drug targeting and contrast agents.

Monthly Highlight

Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Hear, hear: MRI offers acoustic neuroma insights

For the first time, a US research team has demonstrated, using magnetic resonance imaging data, that taking regular aspirin reduces the growth of acoustic neuromas, also known as vestibular schwannomas. The development of this type of intracranial tumour can lead to tinnitus and hearing loss but can also be fatal.

Task or team: Flipping leadership roles

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) shows that activity between two networks within the brain are not activated simultaneously: one network being associated with noticing and working with other people while the other is more task orientated. The findings may have implications for human resource management and in understanding social dynamics.

In order to elucidate the possible role of melanin in the MRI contrast of melanoma, the paramagnetic content in melanin pigment was correlated to the contrast on T1-, T2- and T2*-weighted images.

Talking music: fMRI improvises a link

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brains of jazz musicians engrossed in spontaneous, improvisational musical conversation light up in areas conventionally associated with spoken language and syntax. These brain regions are thought to be involved in the interpretation of the structure of phrases and sentences. Conversely, the musical "conversation" leads to reduced activity in brain areas linked to meaning, semantics, - those processes that work out the meaning of spoken language.

James Keeler, Editor-in-Chief of Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, discusses the high-resolution NMR of liquid samples, concentratring exclusively on spin-half nuclei (mainly 1H and 13C). It is aimed at people who are familiar with the use of routine NMR for structure determination and who wish to deepen their understanding of just exactly how NMR experiments work.

Agilent Research Products Division vice president and general manager, Regina Schuck talks about her experiences of a lifetime spent in NMR, including the most significant recent developments, the current challenges and a glimpse into the NMR of the future.

Agilent Research Products Division vice president and general manager, Regina Schuck describes how the recently-acquired nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy products are complementary to Agilent's mass spectrometry portfolio.
