Ferumoxytol is an ultrasmall, paramagnetic iron oxide and also a novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent. With its unique features (long plasma half-life and delayed intracellular uptake) ferumoxytol may pay a crucial role in the MR imaging in the future. We have completed over 700 MRI studies with ferumoxytol in our institution, primarily for CNS imaging. In this presentation we go through the general properties and the specific opportunities of ferumoxytol-enhanced MRI in and outside the brain.
