Title:
MR imaging of neuronal transport in the guinea pig facial nerve: initial findings. 
Abstract:
Certain dextran coated iron oxides such as MION (monocrystalline iron oxide nanocompound) coupled to wheat germ agglutinin (MION-WGA) have been shown to exhibit i) neuronal uptake ii) axonal transport and iii) strong magnetic effects on tissues (superparamagnetism) in which they are localized. In the current study, we utilized such an agent to visualize axonal transport in the facial nerve in vivo by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Following injection of the compound into the facial nerves of g...    »
