In this study, a newly-synthesized metalloporphyrin, Gd-chlorin (PB Chlorin), was investigated by using a simple tissue phantom to test its efficacy as an MRI contrast agent. This study demonstrated the potential activity of Gd-chlorin as not only a MRI contrast agent, but also as a PDT photosensitizer by using a simple tissue phantom and conducting a very brief MRI experiment.
