Bruker Applies MRI to Study Atherosclerosis and Discusses Results in Education Webinar

Share:

In this webinar, which LabRoots will host September 20, attendees will gain a better understanding of 2D dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI and 3D T1 mapping of the aortic root and ascending aorta using Bruker BioSpec 70/30 USR and self-gated imaging.

YORBA LINDA, Calif. (PRWEB) August 27, 2018

Cardiovascular disease due to atherosclerosis is the leading cause of disease and mortality worldwide. So-called "vulnerable" atherosclerotic plaques are those that are likely to result in clinical events. One of the hallmarks of vulnerable plaques is increased endothelial permeability, a feature that is related to the progression of the disease across all stages of the atherosclerotic cascade.

Increased endothelial permeability at the beginning of atherosclerosis is believed to allow lipid deposition and plaque formation to occur. At later stages it is associated with plaque inflammation and extravasation of inflammatory cells that occurs as a plaque progresses and may eventually lead to plaque rupture.

This webinar, which is sponsored by Bruker, will describe the application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the characterization of increased endothelial permeability in mouse atherosclerotic plaques using the preclinical Bruker Biospec 7 Tesla horizontal 70/30 scanner and self-gating features (IntraGate). Attendees will learn the advantages of using self-gated techniques for cardiac and vascular imaging, as well as understand the flexibility these techniques provide for individuals working in pre-clinical imaging.

The speakers for this event will be Dr. Claudia Calcagno Mani, an assistant professor in the department of radiology, at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai New York. Calcagno holds a medical degree from the University of Genova and a doctorate from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai/New York University. Her main research interest is dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the atherosclerotic arterial vessel wall.

LabRoots will host the September 20, 2018. Attendees will have two opportunities to watch live, the first session will begin at 10 a.m. CEST and a second will follow at 5 p.m. CEST.
