Abstract

Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) is rapidly maturing as an advanced method for spatial metabolite profiling. Herein, we provide an introduction to MSI including types of instrumentation, detailed sample preparation, data collection, overview of data analysis steps, software, common standards, and new developments. Further, we provide an overview of MSI in the clinical space over the past 3 years where MSI has been deployed in diverse research areas including cancer, neurobiology, lipidomics, and metabolite profiling and mapping to name only a few. We provide several examples demonstrating the applicability of MSI to spatially profile metabolites in unique systems requiring special considerations outside of the norm.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 February 2017.
All research outputs
#5,102,571
of 20,781,426 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#748
of 4,630 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#101,095
of 387,311 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#110
of 664 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,781,426 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 75th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,630 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 83% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 387,311 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 664 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 83% of its contemporaries.
