Radiography Research Laboratory

Translational Imaging Laboratory

The laboratory is designed to perform radiography research to develop novel translational imaging techniques using in vivo small animal imaging instruments. The laboratory is equipped with various state-of-the-art in vivo imaging systems including intravital microscope, optoacoustic imaging system, x-ray irradiator, and optical/CT imaging system.

 

Major Instruments:

  • iThera Medical MSOT inVision 128 Vivo Imaging System
  • Faxitron Bioptics MultiRad 225 Compact Cabinet X-ray System, Complete with Accessories
  • PerkinElmer IVIS Spectrum CT In Vivo Imaging System

 

iThera Medical MSOT inVision 128 Vivo Imaging System

This system offers intravital fluorescence imaging capability with small animal in single-cell resolution. With the aid of imaging window technology, it can offer long-term cell tracking performance in live animals with multiple fluorescent labels.
