Dinesh Shah, MD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, co-authored two new articles – both have been accepted by their respective journals and will soon be published.
“Impact of Ferumoxytol Magnetic Resonance Imaging on the Rhesus Macaque Maternal-Fetal Interface”, which will be published in the journal Biology of Reproduction, examined whether feromoxytol-enhanced MRIs affected maternal or fetal health in rhesus macaques. Knowing whether this technique is affects the maternal-fetal interface is important because “ferumoxytol-enhanced MRI holds great potential for assessing vascular function and inflammatory response, critical to determine placental health in pregnancy.”
A second article about similar research, “Quantitative Ferumoxytol-enhanced MRI in Pregnancy: A Feasibility Study in the Nonhuman Primate,” has been accepted to the journal Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Congratulations, Dr. Shah!
