2004). While this method needs to be developed further, it offers the possibility of predicting bone architecture in the future based on the trend in the changes measured over time from in vivo micro-CT (Fig. 8). Image-Guided Failure Analysis A novel application of in vitro micro-CT is to monitor failures of bone structures as loads are applied. The technique is called image-guided failure assessment (IGFA) and was developed to better understand the mechanisms of bone failure (Nazarian and M¨uller 2004).

Gadolinium complexes). An example of a contrast agent that detects albumin is MS-325, which has an increase in tumbling time (and thereby a decrease in T1 relaxation time) when this contrast agent binds to serum albumin. Many of the responsive agents are PARACEST agents which, when affected by the change in the cellular environment, undergo changes in proton exchange rate or MR frequency. A range of different PARACEST agents have been shown to detect changes in pH, temperature, various enzymes (such as caspase 3, when a peptidyl ligand of the agent is cleaved by this enzyme), various metabolites (such as L -lactate, which changes MR frequency when the PARACEST agent binds to this metabolite) or gases such as nitric oxide (Liu et al.

Gradient echo or T2 ∗ imaging is extremely sensitive for detecting the dephasing effect of these agents, but such sequences are also sensitive to artifacts produced by tissue and field inhomogeneities. Thus, at the very high fields often used for experimental imaging, T2 rather than T2 ∗ maging is selected for optimal image quality. Several steps and approaches have been taken in the development of the optimal superparamagnetic nanoparticles for molecular imaging (Gupta et al. 2007; McCarthy et al.
