Our interdisciplinary team invites you to join our training course on state-of-the-art imaging of mice. We will introduce you into a broad spectrum of dedicated imaging technologies including PET, SPECT, CT, MRI, mouse ultrasound and optical imaging. A special emphasis is on specific in-depth practical training sessions (hands-on with four participants max.) and interactive imaging data analysis at our training and demonstration facility (VisualLab). Each participant will work with animal models, apply various imaging modalities and explore multimodal image data sets.

Individuals with experience in small animal imaging as well as beginners are welcome to join our workshop.

CME credit points will be applied for from the Medical Association.

Topics

  • Animal handling: i.v./i.p. injection, tail vein catheter, anaesthesia, surgery
  • PET/SPECT: static and dynamic scanning, CT fusion
  • CT: in vivo scans +/- contrast agents, respiratory gating
  • MRI: in vivo scans +/- contrast agents, cardiac & respiratory gating
  • Ultrasound: hands-on scanning +/- contrast agents
  • Optical imaging: fluorescence, bioluminescence, photoacoustic
  • Multimodal Imaging: PET/CT, PET/MRI, SPECT/CT
  • Image analysis: methods, coregistration, quantification

Please note: Large portions of the workshop are held in radiation and/or S1/S2 gene technology safety areas where access for pregnant women is not permitted!
