Abstract

Ionic manganese in divalent form (Mn2+) is a particularly useful contrast agent known for its sensitivity as well as its function as a calcium (Ca2+) analog in magnetic resonance imaging. Consequently, the use of Mn2+ in imaging studies has increased dramatically as molecular medicine incorporates clinical imaging techniques. Both the physical and chemical characteristics of Mn2+ are reviewed in Chapter XXXXX.
