Our Mission
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is one of the most important methods of visualization in medical diagnostics. A key factor in the implementation of the method is a threshold sensitivity, which limits the possibilities of NMR spectroscopy and MRI. One of the ways of radical (by 3-4 orders of magnitude) increase of NMR signals intensity is the hyperpolarization of the observed ensembles of nuclear spins. There are several ways to create a hyperpolarized state. These are dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP), parahydrogen-induced polarization (PHIP), and hyperpolarization by spin-exchange optical pumping (SEOP). As a result, of the application of such techniques, long-living hyperpolarized states of liquid, solid or gas substances are created, that can be safely injected into the body to obtain unique information about the morphology and functional characteristics of the tissues.
