Small Animal Ultrasound Core

Overview of Services

The Small Animal Ultrasound Core provides access to the Vevo 2100 high-resolution digital imaging platform with linear technology and Color Doppler.

The machine offers:

• 30micron resolution
• frame rates up to 1000fps
• Color and Power Doppler for blood flow quantification and anatomical identification.
• 3D Imaging and Volume Analysis
• Superb B-mode (2D) imaging with frame rates up to 1000 fps with multiple focal zones for enhanced image uniformity
• M-mode assesses motion in cardiovascular applications
• Pulsed-wave Doppler (PW) for blood flow quantification
• Color Doppler shows flow direction, mean velocities & identifies small vessels not seen in B-mode
• Power Doppler for relative quantification of blood flow
• Simultaneous modes and steering for easier & faster studies
• MicroMarker™ Contrast Imaging – for relative perfusion & targeted molecular data
• 3D Imaging, rendering, reconstruction & volume analysis
