Atherosclerosis genesis is attributed to a breakdown of homeostatic mechanisms undergoing increased oxidative stress followed by inflammation with extension to all aortic layers. Nitroxide radicals (NR) have been used as a redox-sensitive T1 contrast agent in NMR studies. Previous results have demonstrated assessment of exogenous induce redox state by using NR. In this study, we statistically assess the kinetics of NR-induced T1-weighted contrast in the ex-vivo porcine vascular wall. The results demonstrate persistence of the key values of NR induced T1-contrast kinetics and allow stepping further to quantitative assessment of the redox state within the vascular wall.
