Tiny robot walks, crawls, jumps and swims and we can image it!

We are very excited to support the incredible science by an innovative group of researchers at Max Planck Institutes in Germany. This team has developed a pinworm-like robot that can walk, jump, crawl and swim in water in hopes that it can be used for targeted drug delivery and to improve minimally invasive surgical procedures.

Measuring Renal Blood Flow in Transgenic Mouse Models

Renal perfusion is governed by blood flow in the renal artery and is a key factor determining kidney function. To our knowledge, we are one of the few centers in the United States that have successfully measured renal blood flow in transgenic mouse models using the Vevo 2100 system. Read full story.

In Vivo Photoacoustic Detection of Lymph Node Metastasis using Glycol-Chitosan-Coated Gold Nanoparticles

Metastasis rather than primary tumors determine prognosis and mortality in the majority of cancer patients. Detection of metastatic lesions is critical to determine prognosis and suitable treatments. We developed a method... Read full story.

Photoacoustic Imaging of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells Labeled with Prussian Blue–Poly(l-lysine) Nanocomplexes

MRI has relatively poor temporal resolution of minutes, while micro-CT imaging has good temporal resolution, it also has limited sensitivity and poor soft tissue contrast. Photoacoustic imaging can overcome these limitations as a powerful tool with excellent spatial (50-150 μm) and temporal resolution (100 ms). Learn more.

Photoacoustic Imaging for Dysplasia Diagnosis in Barrett's Esophagus

Accurate endoscopic detection of dysplasia in patients with Barrett’s esophagus (BE) remains a major clinical challenge. Hence, there is a clinical need for a rapid in vivo wide-field imaging method to identify dysplasia in BE, with the capability to image beyond the mucosal layer. Read more.

Using Echocardiography to Evaluate the Development of Heart Failure in Aging Mice

We used Vevo technology to periodically assess left ventricle function during aging and to determine the stage of worst disease condition at which we harvested the heart and performed papillary muscle studies. Read more.

Photoacoustic Imaging of Placental Oxygenation

There is an urgent need to identify first trimester pregnancies at risk for the development of preeclampsia—a leading cause of maternal and perinatal mortality—in order to improve clinical treatment of the disease.

Photoacoustic assessment of spatially and temporally varying oxygen saturation and perfusion in an orthotopic rat model of human hepatocellular carcinoma

Hypoxia, a deficiency in the amount of oxygen reaching tissue, plays a central role in poor HCC outcomes. ccumulating evidence shows that up to 50-60% of locally advanced solid tumors may exhibit heterogeneously distributed hypoxic (and anoxic) areas within the tumor mass. Read more.

Bench to Bedside

The fundamental goal of basic science (pre-clinical) research is to translate what we learn in cells and animal models to human physiology and human disease states. Today, it's not uncommon to hear terms such as “Knowledge Translation” and “Translational Research”. Read more.
