Prepolarized MRI at Earth Field to seek new contrasts linked to molecular events for very early detection of pathologies

Discover the project


PrimoGaia opens up a new pathway in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) by initiating the concept of in vivo “enzymatic imaging” for a better understanding of human physiology, early detection and prognosis of diseases, monitoring of therapeutic treatment.
