Whole Animal Imaging

Imaging living animals is both an important stepping stone towards intraoperative imaging and an invaluable tool for biomedical research. Now, researchers studying cancer therapies in mice must choose between imprecise measurements made on living mice and sacrificing the animal for high-resolution imaging. We have developed high-resolution whole-animal in vivo systems for mouse and zebrafish imaging to offer an improved alternative.
