Contrast agent assessment for correlative imaging across different preclinical and specimen imaging modalities (micro-CT, optical projection tomography, etc.):
We are developing techniques to image contrast media with different imaging modalities (x-ray and optical). Using a single contrast media will ensure that the same structures are highlighted in each of the images. We are also working with novel contrast agents containing different metallic nanoparticles to determine the efficacy and time course of these agents.
