WMIC Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) Education Session

September 12, 2018 | Washington State Convention Center: Room 608
Session 6: 11-12:30

MPI shows extraordinary promise as a safe, noninvasive, and quantitative imaging method and could be a rapid, noninvasive complement to many Nuclear Medicine exams. MPI uses a strong field gradient to isolate the signal from a superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) tracer to a specific 3D voxel. Like Nuclear Medicine, the MPI image is “positive contrast” and the image quality is robust anywhere in the body, including the lungs and bone. MPI offers ideal contrast, because tissues produce zero MPI signal and because tissues are magnetically transparent. The MPI signal from 25-nm SPIOs tracers is so strong enough to detect 200 cells with quantitative, positive contrast anywhere in an animal. This sensitivity is superior to all positive-contrast, whole-animal imaging techniques. Some SPIOs are already FDA or EU safety approved, so clinical translation is feasible.  MPI scan times range from real time and spatial resolution is 1 mm.  Unlike Hyperpolarized 13C MRI methods and Nuclear Medicine methods, MPI’s SPIO reporters retain their magnetic signature indefinitely.   Hence, MPI has a distinct “half-life” advantage over scintigraphy techniques, and MPI has tracked stem cells for 3 months in vivo. Moreover, SPIO labeled tracers requires no cumbersome and slow “hot chemistry.  The field of MPI is rapidly improving, with new hardware and MPI-tailored SPIOs being developed to allow for single-cell sensitivity with 100-micron resolution.
