The detection of adipose tissue (AT) is of great importance in studying obesity. Isoflurane is a common fluorinated anesthetic with an excellent safety record in preclinical studies, which has a high blood–gas partition coefficient in adipose tissue. This abstract demonstrates that 19F-isoflurane can be used as an MR contrast agent for noninvasive imaging of AT in a mouse body.
