Preclinical Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography

Infrastructure

    Infrastructure Details

    Acronym

    MSOT

    Description

    Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography is a powerful optoacoustic imaging system for small animal imaging. It acquires cross-sectional images from head to tail, with high resolution, in vivo and in real time. The machine is also equipped with ultrasound computed tomography for further insights.
