Magnetic contrast agents are widely used in magnetic resonance imaging in order to change signals from certain regions compared with the surrounding tissue. Despite a high variety of single-mode T1(T2) contrast agents, dual-mode contrast from one agent is needed. Here, we report on the synthesis of magnetic submicron carriers, containing Fe3O4 nanoparticles in their structure. We show the ability to control magnetic resonance contrast by changing not only the number of magnetite nanoparticles in one carrier or the concentration of magnetite in the suspension but also the structure of the core–shell itself. The obtained data open up prospects for dual-mode T1/T2 magnetic contrast formation and for future investigations in this direction. View this paper.
