Measuring Absolute Blood Perfusion using Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound
This recent publication by Shirinfard et al, uses a novel microbubbles injection technique to evaluate the feasibility of using dynamic contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) to assess absolute perfusion of tissue in mice.

Photoacoustic Imaging of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells Labeled with Prussian Blue–Poly(l-lysine) Nanocomplexes
Submitted by: Dr. Taeho Kim, University of California, San Diego, USA
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).
Imaging with Bubbles…Next Generation Tool for Molecular Imaging?
Submitted by: Melissa Yin, Scientific Applications Specialist
The recent 2016 FDA approval of Bracco’s Lumason for its use in liver lesion detection for both adults and children, marks a milestone for microbubble imaging, paving the way for increased adoption and expanded clinical use of microbubbles in abdominal and pelvic imaging.
VEVO TIPS & TRICKS
Kelly Shares this Tip: Optimizing Color Doppler
This issue's tip has been shared by Dr. Kelly O'Connell, Applications Scientist. This content is available to registered users only. There are many parameters that can be used to optimize the Color Doppler signature in your image. Increasing or decreasing Doppler gain will not necessarily help visualize different velocities of flow. Doppler gain should be used in conjunction with velocity, to help optimize the color signal displayed.
