Master's position on High-Field PASADENA Hyperpolarization

Current methods for the production of hyperpolarized 13C-tracers require a dedicated, complex and costly polarizer device. Recently, we developed a new method that enables 13C-hyperpolarization >20% and ex-vivo 13C-MRI without an external polarizer, but by using the hardware of an MRI system instead.  The tracer is produced near the application site and subsequent 13C-MRI is possible without transfer of the sample, at a fraction of the cost and complexity of external polarizers. The aim of this thesis is the implementation of the method on a 3 Tesla Siemens MRI system and further analysis of the underlying physics.

For further information, please inquire at Andreas Schmidt.
