Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/06 - 06/30/08

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project is to develop an instrument to measure the polarization of a hyperpolarized noble gas, Helium- 3 and Xenon-129, for enhanced lung MRIs in a clinical environment. It is essential to have some means of measuring polarization at various stages in the handling of these gases, e.g. at production, s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/15/01 - 12/31/02

DESCRIPTION (Provided by Applicant): A use has recently been proposed for hyperpolarized noble gases as an MIRI contrast enhancer for e.g. MRJ of the lungs and other vacuous spaces. In all applications using hyperpolarized gases, it is important to measure its polarization. This is especially the case for hyperpo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 03/12/01 - 02/28/02

In the last few years, a new method of MRI has been developed using hyperpolarized noble gases (3He and 129Xe) as MRI enhancers. These enable vacuous spaces, such as the lungs, sinuses, bowel and uterus to be imaged by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. There is the further advantage, that the prog...
