BII Seminar | Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography (MSOT) imaging system | High Resolution Functional and Molecular Imaging in Small Animals (and Man)
Host: Biomedical Imaging Institute
About the event:
You are invited to attend a presentation by Dr Tim Devling from iThera Medical on Tues 12th Nov. in Lecture Theatre 5, Stopford Building from 12.30-1.30 (preceded by lunch in Room 2.56).
Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography (MSOT) - High Resolution Functional and Molecular Imaging in Small Animals (And Man)
Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography (MSOT) is a powerful new pre-clinical and clinical imaging modality that visualises the spectral response of chromophores in vivo, with high resolution, to depths of several centimetres. Uniquely, it provides the capacity to separate endogenous signals of interest such as oxy-/deoxy-hemoglobin & tissue contrast from extrinsically administered agents including nanoparticles and fluorescent dyes or proteins. Within this talk, we will outline the principles of optoacoustic imaging & show how MSOT can be used to characterize a range of pre-clinical disease models and applications including cancer, nanoparticle kinetics/biodistribution, neurobiology, cardiovascular, inflammation and toxicity. We will also introduce MSOT as a clinical tool and highlight key applications such as vascular mapping and tumour analysis.
