New research conducted at the Florida State University-based National High Magnetic Field Laboratory has revealed a new, innovative way to classify the severity of a stroke, aid in diagnosis and evaluate potential treatments.

“Stroke affects millions of adults and children worldwide,” said Sam Grant, MagLab researcher and associate professor of chemical and biomedical engineering at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. “This research offers a new technique for the chemical analysis of metabolites during stroke and a means of evaluating dynamic changes in cell processes and size in living tissue.”

The research is detailed in two papers, “Metabolic properties in stroked rats revealed by relaxation-enhanced magnetic resonance spectroscopy at ultrahigh fields,” in Nature Communications and “Metabolic T1 dynamics and longitudinal relaxation enhancement in vivo at ultrahigh magnetic fields on ischemia” in the Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism.
