The multimodality approach to in vivo detection of free radicals combines the relative benefits of three free radical detection modalities: conventional RF CW-ESR, LODESR and PEDRI. We have built apparatus capable of combining these modalities to allow sequential PEDRI and CW-ESR, sequential LODESR and proton NMR imaging and simultaneous LODESR and CW-ESR. These systems offer superior performance in terms of both the scope and quality of information over single-modality free radical detection systems.
