Photoacoustic Imaging of Placental Oxygenation
Submitted by Dr. Carolyn Bayer, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA, USA
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. Our research laboratory is developing ultrasound-guided spectral photoacoustic imaging of placental ischemia in vivo.
Embryo oxyhemo 3D
In vivo 3D rendered coregistered high-resolution ultrasound (greyscale) and photoacoustic (red, white and blue) image of a mid-gestational fetus and its associated placenta. The photoacoustic signal represents a parametric map of oxygen saturation with red values representing higher sO2.
Use of Ultrasound and Photoacoustics for Placental Imaging
This recent article by Arthuis et al. highlights the benefits of using Ultra High Frequency (UHF) Ultrasound with Photoacoustics to assess placental oxygenation in a rat model at mid-to-late gestation. Learn More!
Use of Ultrasound with 3D Contrast to Assess Colorectal Cancer
This recent article by Freeling et al. highlights the benefits of using Ultra High Frequency (UHF) Ultrasound with 3D Non-linear contrast (NLC) to assess colorectal cancer in a murine model. Learn More!
VEVO TRAVEL AWARDS
DEADLINE: March 6th! For Oncology and Developmental Track Submissions
If you are using a Vevo imaging system for your research, then you may be eligible for our Vevo Travel Award Program! The purpose of this program is to help cover the travel costs associated with presenting your scientific work (as a poster, oral or invited talk) at a conference, symposium or professional meeting.
VEVO TIPS & TRICKS
Image Optimization using Bubble-free Gel
This issue's Tip has been shared by Application Scientist Kelly. Many parameters can be adjusted on the Vevo LAZR and LAZR-X systems to optimize your image (i.e. gain, persistence, TGC sliders, and more), but one of the most important optimization parameters isn’t a button at all, it’s gel.
