We present a new class of biodegradable responsive 31P phosphorus–containing contrast agent for dual 1H/31P MRI. Both 1H and 31P MR imaging modalities offer complementary information and can be easily combined at the same experiment. The switch to phosphorus MR signal can reflect biochemical changes in the organism. An implementation for 1H/31P MR at 4.7 T is presented and its properties are investigated.
