Ultrasound

The Prospect T1 imaging system (S-Sharp) is an ultrasound imaging system optimized for mice and rats. The system has four modes; B-mode for 2D gray-level real time imaging, used to visualise soft tissues and organs. M-mode for the assessment of motion information over time, used largely for measurements of the heart. Colour and Pulse wave Doppler modes for blood flow analysis, and contrast mode for detection of contrast agents.

Currently active projects:

  • Measurement of cardiac function in mice
  • Measurement of subcutaneous tumour growth
  • Measurement of hepatic and pancreatic tumour progression
