Innovative Magnetic Nanoparticles for PET/MRI Bimodal Imaging

Isabelle Séverin


Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles were developed as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) bimodal imaging agents. These nanoparticles (NPs), with a specific nanoflower morphology, were first synthesized and simultaneously functionalized with 3,4-dihydroxy-l-phenylalanine (LDOPA) under continuous hydrothermal conditions. The resulting NPs exhibited a low hydrodynamic size of 90 ± 2 nm. The functional groups of LDOPA (-NH2 and -COOH) were successfully used for the grafting of molecules of interest in a second step. The nanostructures were modified by poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) and a new macrocyclic chelator MANOTA for further ⁶⁴Cu radiolabeling for PET imaging. The functionalized NPs showed promising bimodal (PET and MRI) imaging capability with high r2 and r2∗ (T2 and T2∗ relaxivities) values and good stability. They were mainly uptaken from liver and kidneys. No cytotoxicity effect was observed. These NPs appear as a good candidate for bimodal tracers in PET/MRI.
