Functional cardiac imaging

Preclinical cardiac imaging is challenging as the rodent heart is a moving target that beats 10 times faster than the human heart. Our facility offers the Vevo 2100 Ultrasound and the Bruker BioSpec 9.4T MRI for this purpose. Ultrafast or gated techniques are used to generate information on cardiac structure, function, tissue health and cellular viability.

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