Pancreatic Cancer

Robust tool for studying orthotopic tumors

A Comprehensive Solution for Pancreatic Cancer Researchers


VisualSonics offers your complete imaging solution for orthotopic pancreatic cancer models, from model generation with image-guided injection to characterization of the tumor micro-environment. Vevo technology enables you to get a complete understanding of the anatomy and physiology in your specific tumor models and monitor response to treatment longitudinally.

Non-invasively perform everything from monitoring tumor size, vascularity, perfusion kinetics or oxygen saturation to quantification of targeted agents, all in one system!

Healthy Pancreas

Your multimodal solution for robust evaluation of pancreatic tumor models:

• Non-invasively inject and generate orthotopic models with precision
• Quickly and accurately measure tumor size longitudinally
• Characterize tumor micro and macro vasculature in response to treatment
• Assess intratumoral hypoxia
• Perform targeted measurements of nanomedicines or theranostic agents
 

Image-guided Needle Injection

Example of image guided injection into the tail of the mouse pancreas. This technique can be used to deliver cancer cells to develop a model, as a non-invasive alternative to surgery.
