Echocardiography

Vevo® 2100 system (Visual Sonics)

  • High frequency ultrasound biomicroscopy: This innovative high resolution imaging enables in vivo assessment of structural and functional cardiovascular abnormalities within different imaging modes.
  • B-mode: provides a 2-dimensional picture of the anatomical structures such as ventricle size and wall thickness.
  • M-mode: displays the motion of tissue structures as a function of time supplying information about contraction and pump capacity.
  • Doppler modes: examine the blood flow velocity and direction for hemodynamic investigations or valve functional test, blood flow quantification, anatomical structure identification.

Electrocardiography

ECGenieTM System (Mouse Specifics, Inc.)

Method and apparatus for non-invasively recording electrodiagrams (ECG) in conscious animals, supplying information about the conductive and myocardial properties.
