Rapid evaluation of the liver in 2D or 3D has never been easier.
A validated approach for in vivo research: As shown in recently published paper from Hepatology Communications (PMID: 35202510), the Vega can be used to track the onset and progression of liver diseases in a highly sensitive manner, and with minimal sonographic expertise. The noninvasive ultrasound readouts for both fibrosis and steatosis were validated against histological ground truth measures.
Robotic data collection enables liver assessment without a trained sonographer
No Sonographer? No Problem!
Shear wave elastography can be used to explore tissue stiffness
- As fibrosis progresses, tissue stiffness is known to increase.
- Shear wave elastography allows tissue stiffness to be measured noninvasively.
- Explore changes in liver disease over time in response to injury/therapy..
- Measure functional information about the liver in a consistent and reproducible manner.
- Investigate multiple diseases including: NASH, liver fibrosis, NAFLD
Murine model of NASH (choline-deficient, high-fat diet)
- The entire liver can be scanned with increased field of view technology enabled by SonoVol®.
- High resolution data in both tissue and vascular modes allows fat deposits, tumors, and fibrosis to be evaluated non-invasively and quantitatively.
- Liver Imaging provides rapid assessment of steatosis in 3D.
