Cardiovascular Imaging Using the Quantum microCT Platform


  • 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. View the webinar to learn how Dr. Jeroen Essers from Erasmus Medical Center at Rotterdam used the Quantum microCT imaging system 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.
