Ultra High-Frequency Ultrasound

What Is Ultra High Frequency Ultrasound (UHF)?

Our Vevo imaging systems and their transducers deliver an acoustic pulse into the small animal’s body. Tissues of different densities absorb and reflect sound waves differently resulting in high-resolution grayscale images when the partially reflected sound waves return to the transducer.

Our ultra high frequency ultrsound systems give you high resolution - down to 30 µm while imaging depths up to 3cm at frame rates up to 10,000 fps.

Get information on: 

  • Blood flow, localization, and direction
  • Tissue motion over time
  • Presence of molecular biomarkers
  • Anatomy and size of 2D, 3D and 4D regions
  • Cardiac and Vascular strain

Key Benefits of High-Frequency Ultrasound For Your in vivo Research

  1. Non-invasive and non-radioactive
  2. Reduce animal usage by conducting longitudinal studies
  3. Co-registration of anatomical, functional, physiological and molecular data
  4. Real-time detection of anomalies 
  5. In vivo imaging for better translation to the clinic
