Abstract: In this in vitro study of a potential oral MRI contrast agent, barium sulfate suspension (BSS), the object was to examine the effect of varying barium sulfate concentration on signal intensity while keeping suspension additives the same; and to optimize the concentration of a specific preparation of BSS. A phantom was used to test suspensions with concentrations of barium sulfate ranging from 90% to 220% w/v. T1-weighted, T2-weighted, and gradient echo sequences all showed a decrease in signal as concentration…
