Here we introduce a new approach which could be used for detection of MR signal changes produced by bioresponsive MRI agents. We developed a nanosized, Ca-sensitive dendrimeric probe that changes T1 and T2 relaxation times with different magnitudes. The change in their...

We prepared three new bismacrocyclic Ln(III) complexes as potential chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) MRI contrast agents. We investigated their CEST effects in presence of Ca(II), and analyzed their properties by means of luminescence steady-state emission...
