Vascular Biology

Quantify vascular function with the Vevo Imaging Systems

Finally, In Vivo Assessments of Vascular Function!

Visualize and quantify vascular functional parameters non-invasively!

The Vevo imaging systems allow for non-invasive, real-time detection and quantification of vascular function. Using the advanced VevoVasc software, arterial stiffness and pulse wave velocity can be quantified by even the novice user. 3D rendering of aortic plaques and abdominal aortic aneurysms allow for reconstruction and volumetric quantification in vivo with resolution down to 30 microns.

•    Quantify pulse wave velocity
•    Detect aneurysm and perform 3D reconstruction
•    Analyze vessel wall characteristics (i.e. diameter, strain, velocity, stiffness, etc.)
•    Quantify blood flow

What do I do if my PW Doppler signal gets cut-off and I can’t visualize the peak velocity?

This is a common occurrence when imaging the aorta in TAC models...

Can I measure pulse wave velocity (pulse propagation velocity) using your system?

Yes, pulse propagation velocity (PPV) can be measured using our Vevo Vasc software...

What is the difference between Color Doppler and Power Doppler?

Color Doppler gives information about directional blood flow and velocity, whereas...

Why is PW Doppler velocity reported as negative?

PW Doppler takes into account blood flow directionality.

How do I locate the renal artery?

The renal artery and renal vein...

How can I differentiate between artery vs vein?

There are three techniques that can be used...
