Acoustic Angiography™ is a contrast enhanced imaging technique using microbubbles. Quickly and easily assess angiogenic tumor vessel networks. Overlay co-registered image data from both traditional b-mode ultrasound and Acoustic Angiography mode for improved understanding of tumor functional status.

With the Vega 100 it is possible to longitudinally study tumor models in vivo for an enhanced understanding of angiogenic activity.
Noninvasively quantify blood vessels ≥150 μm in diameter and at depths up to 2.5 cm into tissue.
The DF226 transducer is a dual frequency wobbler probe designed specifically for this type of imaging.
