Type of infrastructure
DescriptionUltrasound imaging of the heart in small animals requires high-frequency technology. Coupling such information to molecular imaging may be obtained through use of photoacoustics. The instrument acquired to the BMC to obtain such imaging is the Vevo LAZR-X (FUJIFILM VisualSonics, Toronto, Canada).
