O2M Webinar: Dr. Boris Epel
Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Oxygen Imaging, Principles and Applications
Moderated by Dr. Harold M. Swartz
About the Speaker: Our first speaker is Dr. Boris Epel, Research Professor of the Department of Radiation and Cellular Oncology, University of Chicago. Dr. Epel is one of the inventors of oxygen imaging technology, the designer of imaging instrument, and a founding member of the company.
About the Webinar: Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) Imaging is a well-established method for the study of spatial distribution and local environment of electron paramagnetic centers and spin probes. One of the most important applications of modern EPR imaging is in vivo oximetry in which soluble spin probes with oxygen-dependent relaxation rates are used. The webinar will present fundamental principles of EPR oxygen imaging and give an overview of main applications.
