Cancer Biology and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): The Gold Standard of Soft Tissue Imaging

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique that utilizes magnetic fields to create images of the anatomy and the physiological processes within the body. Specifically, MRI, the gold standard in soft tissue imaging, offers researchers the ability to distinctly contrast between normal and pathological tissue. When it comes to the strengths of MRI in

A versatile tool for 𝘪𝘯 𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘳𝘰 vascular research

Vascular function can be assessed in vitro using a myograph. Benchtop wire myograph systems consist of an organ bath, mounting wire or prongs, a micrometer, and a force transducer and amplifier to measure tension development in the tissue. This simple set-up is used in many fields of research, including pharmacology and vascular physiology. In

Is 1 tesla enough: How low-field MRI is permitting more preclinical researchers to utilize this gold standard technique than ever before

In my day to day interactions, I come across numerous researchers who are not able to fully utilize MRI systems as they would like or cannot see themselves using this technology even though it could immensely help their research. The reasons for this are numerous but often fall into 1 of 3 categories. Price

The Importance of Cohousing During Telemetry Studies

Research animals must be housed under conditions that ensure their physiologic and behavioral needs are met.  These conditions influence animal well-being and the quality of data obtained throughout a study. Facilities are often designed with many of these factors in mind, including temperature and humidity control, lighting, noise and vibration.  However, there are other

PET/CT: Frequently Asked Questions

What is PET/CT Imaging? PET/CT imaging is the combination of two distinct imaging techniques. a What is PET Imaging? PET, or positron emission tomography, is a look at the metabolic or biochemical activity present in a given anatomical region using radiotracers. a What is a radiotracer? A radiotracer is a chemical compound in which

Cancer biology and High-Frequency Ultrasound: non-invasive identification, visualization, and quantification in a wide variety of preclinical tumor models

Ultrasound has become a widely used preclinical imaging modality that can be used to visualize a variety of internal structures within small animal models with high resolution (down to 30µm). This provides researchers with primary structural information in real-time allowing for the non-invasive quantification of organ/tumor parameters in both two- and three-dimensions, as well

𝘐𝘯 𝘷𝘪𝘷𝘰 intermittent hypoxia: New chambers give researchers dynamic and controlled O₂ environment to enhance research

Intermittent hypoxia (IH), also referred to as hypoxia-reoxygenation, is a condition where periods of normal tissue oxygen pressure (normoxia) cycle with periods of low tissue oxygen pressure (hypoxia). This alternating lack of oxygen is associated with various forms of the respiratory illness, sleep apnea. Those afflicted with sleep apnea can see oxygen fluctuate dramatically
