Microfabricated multispectral MRI agents: a brief overview



Gary Zabow


This paper provides an introductory overview on recent top-down microfabricated, as opposed to traditional bottom-up chemically synthesized, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents. As a specific example of the enhanced agent functionality that top-down micro-engineering allows, the paper focuses on recently demonstrated magnetic microstructures that provide multispectral MRI contrast.
