Study of Magnetic Resonance techniques using iper-polarized He3.
Study has been commisioned by a firm dedicated to radioactive product for diagnostic. Goal of the investigation was the use of iper-polarized gas as a contrast agent to improve lungs image quality, usually poor under Xray examination due to the very low tissue density.
In this project SpinScience has participated in the development of both polarization measuring system (based on NMR) and polarized gas transportation. At the moment system is not in use due to the world wide production of He3 monopolized by military applications.
