A Look Back at 2017
By Dr. Kelly O'Connell, Applications Scientist
"As the weather cools down and the lights go up, it’s a great time of year to reflect on some big moments of the previous twelve months."
Evaluation of Melanoma Brain Metastases Using Photoacoustic Imaging
This recent article by Lavaud et al., uses high-frequency ultrasound and spectroscopic photoacoustic imaging as a multimodal non-invasive examination tool for the assessment of melanoma brain tumors in an orthotropic mouse model.
Measuring Renal Blood Flow in Transgenic Mouse Models
Submitted by: Jing Wu, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, The University of Iowa
"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."

VEVO TIPS & TRICKS
Sandra Explains: How to Name 3D Volumes
This issue's tip has been shared by Dr. Sandra Meyer,Senior Applications Specialist, Europe.
This content is available to registered users only.
"3D reconstructions are a powerful analysis tool of the Vevo Lab software. However, sometimes it can get confusing if you have created several volumes within one data set. Learn how to assign different colours and rename 3D volumes to keep track of your analysis."
