Multicolor MRI arrives to improve disease recognition

Scientists have developed a method to make MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) multicolored, which can help in the identification of diseases.

Scientists have developed a method to make MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) multicolored, which can help in the identification of diseases.

Current techniques of MRI use the only contrast agent, which is sent to take pictures in the patient's veins. In the new idea, two agents are used simultaneously.

With this, doctors can detect many properties of internal organs of a patient in a single MRI.

"The method we have designed allows for the first time the simultaneous detection of two different contrast agents of an MRI," said Kirus Flask, associate professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in the US. For example, one of the two contrast agents may target a sick responder and the other may show how healthy the other responder is.
