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.
