First magnetic particle imaging paper in Canada published by Robarts Cellular and Molecular Imaging Group
In a first-in-Canada study led by Olivia Sehl and Dr. Paula Foster, magnetic particle imaging (MPI), together with iron-based magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and fluorine-based MRI, was used to demonstrate quantitative monitoring of mesenchymal stem cell engraftment and the resulting inflammation over time. This is the first paper to combine these imaging technologies to study the fate of two different cell populations (MSCs and macrophages) simultaneously in vivo. This is also the first publication to feature MPI data acquired at a Canadian institution, after the installation of an MPI system at the Robarts Research Institute in August of 2019.
