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.

Advanced Theranostic Imaging For Drug Discovery

The merging of drug therapy and diagnostics to advance personalized medicine is one definition of theranostics. Research in advanced theranostics elevates this concept by merging nanotechnology to benefit drug discovery. Read more.

Using the VevoLAZR to Characterize the Tumor Microenvironment and Develop Innovative Contrast Agents

Molecular Imaging is emerging as an innovative and multidisciplinary field of research aimed at visualizing and quantifying the signature of diseases, making it possible for an earlier and more precise diagnosis. Read more.

Evaluating a Mouse Model of Intracerebral Hemorrhage Using Ultrasound and Photoacoustics

Intracerebral hemorrhages (ICH) is a cause of stroke for which no effective drug therapy exists. Our work investigates a novel mouse model of ICH with high frequency ultrasound (US) and photoacoustics for long-term screening of potential preclinical therapeutics. Read more.

UHF Ultrasound Imaging for Preventative Medicine

New, ultra high frequency (UHF) ultrasound techniques enable visualisation of the separate layers of the vessel wall. This allows us to establish in which part of the vessel wall the initial changes appear, as well as possibly identifying changes at an earlier stage than with the composite measurement of IMT by conventional methods.

Characterizing the Mouse Cardiovascular System in vivo using Vevo Imaging Systems

At the Mouse Imaging Centre of the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, we have collaborated with VisualSonics Inc. since early 2000 and used their products from the very first generation to the most advanced versions. Read more.

Multimodal Imaging And The Newest Cancer Theranostic Agent

Dr. Peng Huang presented his work on the development of a clinically translatable cancer theranostic agent at the World Molecular Imaging Conference in Hawaii. This therapy uses a near-infrared (NIR) cyanine dye and human serum albumin (HSA) conjugate for NIRfluorescence/photoacoustic/thermal multimodality imaging and photothermal tumor ablation. Read more.
