In-vivo tumor progression & treatment follow-up

In oncology research, experimental models of small animals are frequently used for drug development and basic studies. Monitoring tumor and metastases growth is therefore a crucial tool. Our facility offers a variety of noninvasive in vivo imaging tools to address this need. Our systems include ASPECT 1T MRI, Vevo 2100 Ultrasound, and the IVIS 200 Optical Imaging. These noninvasive in vivo techniques allow longitudinal studies, require fewer animals and provide better statistical power.

Our facility also offers quantitative techniques to support and validate the in vivo imaging results. Read about whole slice imaging at Slide Scanner.
