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. 2007c; Yoo and Pagel 2008). Other substances imaged using responsive MR contrast agents include molecular imaging of oxygen, calcium and metal ions such as zinc.

Thus, T1 should be sensitive to tissue water content, and indeed T1 -based sequences have been used to measure brain water content with MRI (Neeb et al. 2006). The increase in brain water or edema associated with stroke or cerebral hypoxia–ischemia is also reflected as an increase in T1 (Barbier et al. 2005; Qiao et al. 2004). Vasogenic edema refers to an increase in brain water accompanied by dysfunction of the blood–brain barrier, and can be associated with increases in protein related to blood brain–barrier dysfunction.

An MTR map (a) is determined using a ratio of the proton density-weighted image in the presence of an off-resonance saturation pulse to the bound proton pool (b) and in the absence of saturation (c). Developmental changes in MTR within white matter (white arrows) are apparent when comparing maps from an adult (a) and neonatal rat at postnatal day 8 (d).
