Here the authors report on the synthesis, characterization, and potential utility of ultra-small NaYF4:Nd3+/NaGdF4 nanocrystals coated with manganese dioxide (usNP-MnO2) for spatiotemporal modulation of hypoxia in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas.
In this recent study by Bachawal et al., authors used the multimodal imaging capabilities of the Vevo imaging system to evaluate the aggressiveness of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) through B7-H3 targeted ultrasound and photoacoustic molecular imaging.
Here the authors utilized the photoacoustic imaging (PA) capabilities of the Vevo LAZR-X to screen donor kidneys for fibrosis prior to implanting them into chronic kidney diseased animal models and patients.
This recent article by Lavaud et al. uses high-frequency ultrasound and spectroscopic photoacoustic imaging (PAI), along with commercially available contrast agents to non-invasively examine metastatic liver lesions.
In this study, Ramasawmy et al.1 sought to compare 9 Tesla (T) MRI, Benchtop (1T) MRI, Vevo US and BLI in the ability to monitor and detect tumor growth in a xenograft colorectal metastasis model in the mouse liver.
