Abstract

(Figure Presented) Stimulus package: GdIII MRI contrast agents were attached to a stimuli-re-sponsive polymer in order to develop a novel MRI probe. This probe changes its conformation in response to external stimuli. Stimuli-responsive dynamics and the change In the relaxivities are esti-mated.
