Targeted contrast for bone metastases and validation with MRI and Histology

The authors evaluate the potential of ultrasound to detect bone metastases in a rat model of metastatic breast cancer. They develop an automated 3D methodology to determine lesion morphology and perfusion, and validate these measurements with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Accuracy of Ultrasound Guided Versus Landmark-Guided Intra-articular Injection for Rat Knee Joints

Here the authors test the effectiveness of ultrasound-guided intra-articular injection in the rat knee joint vs. traditional blind injections that using landmarks. The authors found that: - ultrasound-guided injection had a higher success rate vs traditional injections (89% vs. 58%) - that untrained personnel could complete the ultrasound-guided injections with little to no training

Photoacoustic & Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Hybrid Manganese Dioxide-Coated NaGdF4 Nanoparticles

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.

4D echocardiography for murine heart volumetric evaluation after myocardial infarction

This recent study by Rutledge et al. compares 4D ultrasound (4D-US) with conventional M-mode and B-mode ultrasound for the assessment of LV function in a myocardial infarct model.

Evaluation of ductal carcinoma in situ via molecular imaging of B7-H3 expression

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.

Photoacoustic imaging of kidney fibrosis for assessing pre-transplantation kidney quality

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.

Liver Metastasis Detection and Monitoring using Multispectral Photoacoustic Imaging

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.
Featured Publications

Accurate Assessment of LV Function using Automated Border Detection Algorithm

This study by Grune et al. compares LV functional analysis completed using a novel automated 2D-border detection algorithm (referred to as Auto2DE) versus conventional manual 2D echo assessment (2DE).
