Abstract MRI has the ability to generate high-contrast and
high-resolution images, to obtain multiple diagnostic evaluations
of organ function and morphology, and to provide multiple image
planes with no risk of ionizing radiation. Recent efforts have fo-
cused on using MR technology to monitor gene delivery, to en-
hance gene transfection/transduction, and to track gene
expression. This review summarizes the current status of MRI-
guided gene therapy.
