Cardiology

Quantify cardiac function and structure non-invasively and in real-time!

Your Best Tool For Preclinical Cardiovascular Imaging

Rapid, Repeatable and Well-Established; Ultra High Frequency ultrasound, using the Vevo Imaging Systems, will have an incredible impact on cardiovascular research in your animal models.

Perform reliable echocardiograms for translational cardiovascular research in small animals in vivo with resolution down to 30 microns. Vevo ultrasound imaging platforms provide the best temporal and spatial resolution compared to MRI, conventional ultrasound and CT.

With the Vevo Imaging Systems you can:

Mouse left ventricle imaged with 4D Mode from a parasternal long axis view.

Cardiovascular imaging - Left Ventricular measurements

Left Ventricular measurements taken from a B-Mode parasternal long axis image.

Apical 4 Chamber view

Mitral flow visualized from an apical view of the mouse left ventricle to assess diastolic function.

cardiovascular imaging - B mode ultrasound

B-Mode ultrasound with myocardial oxygen saturation acquired using photoacoustics (PA EKV Mode), from a parasternal long axis view of the mouse left ventricle.

 


Use Vevo Ultrasound to Image any Cardiac Disease Model, Including:

  • Myocardial Infarction
  • Cardiotoxicity
  • Valvular Disease
  • Cardiac Hypertrophy
  • Cardiomyopathy
