Cardiovascular Imaging Using the Quantum microCT Platform

On Demand Webinar

Cardiac imaging methodologies targeting small-animal models have been crucial for rapidly transitioning therapies from bench to bedside. MicroCT imaging has been used extensively in research to generate high-resolution 3D imaging non-invasively to assess structure and function. This makes microCT imaging an essential tool for assessing cardiac morphology, function, perfusion and viability in a mouse model of human heart disease.

This on demand webinar covers how microCT imaging using the Quantum platform can be employed for characterization of experimentally-induced myocardial ischemia. When combined with optical imaging, the molecular bases underlying the disease can be evaluated and visualized. The use of this technique can be further extended towards characterization of other models of cardiovascular disease allowing evaluation of novel preventive and therapeutic strategies.
