Epub 2014 Dec 20.AIM: To develop a magnetic resonance (MR)-visible mesh using iron oxides and prove visibility.METHODS: In a phantom study, a suitable iron oxide, Fe3O4 [iron(II,III) oxide] and FeOOH [iron(III) oxide-hydroxide], concentration was determined using relaxometric MR measurements of the transverse relaxation rates R2 and R2*. Next, a nonabsorbable mesh was designed from the MR-visible threads woven into a polypropylene mesh. Read More
