We are excited to be part of the MgSafe project that has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (to the amount of 4 million euros) under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement N°811226.
Researchers at the Mouse Imaging Centre of the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto have established comprehensive methodologies for mouse cardiovascular imaging using high-frequency ultrasound successfully applying the established methodology to the phenotyping of mutant mouse models with human diseases.
Tatjana Opacic shares a study where her lab developed a new method called motion model ultrasound localization microscopy (mULM) for morphological and functional characterization of tumors at super-resolution.
Using the Vevo 2100 and ultrasound pulsed-wave (PW) Doppler imaging, Caralynn Wilczewski from Dr. Frank L Conlon's lab has developed a reliable method for performing non-invasive in utero embryonic echocardiography on early gestation mouse embryos. Read more.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
