Dynamic distribution of LPS+Gd-DOTA in the inner ear after intracochlear delivery in an open perilymphatic compartments demonstrated by MPR single view of T1-weighted 3D MRI. 1 mM nanoparticle containing 500 mM Gd-DOTA were administered. Intracochlear dynamics was shown in A through D; intravestabular dynamics was shown in E through H. From 30 min to 120 min post-administration of LPS+Gd-DOTA, signal intensities decayed gradually in the STL1, STH1, and Mod; but retained stable in the SVL1, SVH1, and Vest. 30 m, 50 m, etc.: 30 minutes etc; Mod: modilous; MPR: multiplanar reconstruction; SSCs: semicircular canals; STH1: scala tympani of the higher basal turn; STL1: scala tympani of the lower basal turn; SVH1: scala vestibuli of the higher basal turn; SVL1: scala vestibuli of the lower basal turn; Vest: vestibule.
