April 2017: 4D Cardiac Murine Ultrasound: Comparison to Traditional Techniques and MRI
Presented by Dr. Craig Goergen, Assistant Professor and Frederick Damen, MD/ PhD Student from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
What to Expect:
- Traditional 2D ultrasound requires geometric assumptions when estimating cardiac volumes and function.
- Gated volumetric murine ultrasound (4D) can provide unique information.
- Comparison of 4D ultrasound to conventional ultrasound and MR techniques help with validation.
- Initial applications include mouse models of both hypertrophy and myocardial infarction.
