NYU researchers decorate virus particles, showing potential to enhance MRI capabilities
.... The NYU researchers were able to show the attachment
of a large number of gadolinium chelates--the chemical compound used in MRI contrast agents --on the surface of the viral particles. This resulted in the generation of a very intense signal when Wang imaged their samples in a clinical MRI scanner. "O...
