US Vevo 3100

Introduction

The VisualSonics Vevo 3100  system is an in vivo micro-ultrasound imaging system, specially designed for in-vivo small animal (rodent) imaging.

The system enables high-resolution imaging for anatomical, morphological and functional applications. The system is equipped with an ultra-high frequency and high frame rates, which enables imaging at high temporal and spatial resolution (up to 30 µm).

The system is capable of a broad range of applications including cardiology and vascularity (including 4D mode for cardiovascular imaging), oncology, neurobiology, developmental, molecular imaging and drug development. In addition, a precision microinjection system provides a simple and efficient method for direct injection procedures under ultrasound guidance.

The system is equipped with isoflurane anesthesia and monitoring system enabling  respiratory and cardiac gating, a variety of transducers designated for anatomical, vascular and cardiac rodent imaging, an adjustable rail system and physiology plate for easy animal positioning and handling.
