Carried out by researchers from Imagion Biosystems, the University of New Mexico, and Sandia National Laboratories, the study demonstrated the use of superparamagnetic relaxometry (SPMR) for specific detection of HER2 positive tumors in mice. The results suggest the utility of SPMR for sensitive and specific detection of cancer, and represent another successful step in the progression of Imagion Biosystems technology.
