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

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

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
