A three-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique for non-invasive mapping of iron in the apoplastic fluid of plant compartments was developed. The new technique was applied to a leaf of red stem dogwood ( Cornus stolonifera). The results are compared with MRI measurements of iron distributions in two dimensions and with total reflection X-ray fluorescence results.

    We report a rare case of ganglion cyst of Hoffa's fat pad of knee joint. These lesions are asymptomatic in most cases and are often misdiagnosed as meniscal or ligamentous lesions of the knee joint. The fi nal diagnosis was done with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the knee joint, and the...

    Research on controlled drug delivery for cancer chemotherapy has focused mainly on ways to deliver existing anti-cancer drug compounds to specified targets, e.g., by conjugating them with magnetic particles or encapsulating them in micelles. Here, we show that an iron-salen, i.e., μ-oxo N,N'-...

    In Fricke-agarose gels, an accurate determination of the spatial dose distribution is hindered by the diffusion of ferric ions. In this work, a model was developed to describe the diffusion process within gel samples of finite length and, thus, permit the reconstruction of the initial spatial...
