Photoacoustic and Fluorescent Molecular Imaging of Bacterial Infections​

Presented by Dr. Aimen Zlitni, PhD., Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Radiology and Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford University

Procedures such as surgery, arthroplasty, fracture fixations, and biomedical implantations are susceptible to infection and provide means for bacterial seeding. A noninvasive tool to diagnose such infections early and accurately is imperative to determine the optimal course of treatment before the bacterial burden increases and results in systemic infection.

In this webinar, Dr. Zlitni discusses:

  • how photoacoustic imaging can be used as a diagnostic tool during early bacterial infection
  • development and pre-clinical evaluation of a maltotriose-based photoacoustic and fluorescent imaging probe
  • latest discoveries in identifying
  • optimal maltodextrin to target bacteria
  • ideal site for chemical functionalization
  • key characteristics of the dye to bridge the utility of this agent to photoacoustic and/or fluorescent imaging of bacterial infections
  • how development of such agents will lead to a non-invasive, cost effective, real-time imaging solution that can enable early detection of bacterial infection during surgery and injury with high resolution

Non-Invasive Measurement of Myocardial Ischemic Zone in the Mouse Using High Resolution Cardiac Ultrasound

February 6th at 3:00 PM EST

Join us for a LIVE webinar presented by Dr. Daniel Donner, PhD MMedRes GCResMgt BBiomedSc, Cardiac Research Officer at Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute, Australia.

Dr. Daniel Donner will introduce his preclinical platforms approach to quality control in cardiology research uniquely enabled by the Visualsonics' Vevo Imaging System, and describe a newly validated approach to quantifying the ischemic zone following myocardial infarction surgery in the mouse with a range of potential applications.
