Imagiologia - Live Animal Imaging

The Animal Facility at UAlg has a live imaging unit (High Frequency Ultrasound System).

The High Frequency Ultrasound System provides high-resolution imaging of small animal models to visualize anatomical structures and hemodynamic functions in vivo, longitudinally in a non-invasive manner.
The main application areas are: cardiovascular research, cancer research, abdominal imaging, inflammation, reproductive biology, neurobiology, embryonic development, ophthalmology, tissue regeneration and stem cell.
The techniques available are:
- 2D and 3D anatomical structure visualization and measurement.
- Blood flow analysis.
- Image-guided injection and biopsies.
- Contrast imaging to quantify relative perfusion and study biomarker expression.
- VevoStrain analysis software for cardiac research.

Equipment:
Vevo2100 Imaging System
Vevo Imaging Station
Micro-Injection System
Anesthesia System
MS250 MicroScan Transducer (21 MHz)
MS550D MicroScan Transducer(40 MHz)

Quality technical support is provided ranging from advice in experimental design to data analysis.
