A variety of iron oxide preparations with long blood half-lives have been synthesized for MR imaging. Potential applications of these agents include MR angiography, RES imaging, target specific imaging and neuronal transport imaging. This chapter reviews types of iron oxide and mechanisms that are responsible for a prolonged plasma half-life.
