Chun S Zuo, Melvin E Clouse: Use of paramagnetic compounds to measure temperature and pH in vivo. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Lahive & Cockfield, May 19, 1998: US05753207 (1 worldwide citation)

A method for measuring temperature and/or pH in vivo using paramagnetic compounds, e.g., lanthanide complexes, in conjunction with NMR has been developed. The chemical shift of the nuclear spin in these complexes can then be correlated to temperature. This non-invasive temperature measurement method ...
