High-frequency Ultrasound

Small Animal US
The Vevo2100 imaging platform (VisualSonics, Toronta, Canada) provides high-resolution ultrasound (US) imaging of small animals (e.g. mouse, rat, zebrafish). This real-live imaging method is perfectly suited for functional imaging (e.g. cardiac imaging), oncologic imaging or image-guided interventions. Particular the wide spectrum of targeted contrast agents allows ultrasound based imaging at a cellular and subcellular level.
