Dynamic monitoring of vital functions and tissue re-organization

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology in preclinical application enables whole-body longitudinally tracking. The research of Laussmann, T et al. noninvasively monitors lipid consumption, cardiac activity and haemolymph circulation during final metamorphosis of Emperor Moth (Saturnia pavonia) before eclosion.

Enhancing our knowledge of Parkinson's Disease with Preclinical Imaging

Every year on April 11, World Parkinson’s Day raises awareness for this neurodegenerative disease. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques in preclinical research, contribute to a better understanding of Parkinson.

A team of researchers led by Satomi Kikuta at the Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine in Sendai, Japan, have studied Parkinson's disease in a mouse model using activation-induced manganese-enhanced MRI.
