Image of the Month
Every month we'll publish a new image taken by CABI researchers. Can you guess what it is?
WHAT: The blood vessel network of the mouse liver.
SIZE: Approximately 1 cm3
IMAGE: Maximum Intensity Projection of a High Resolution MRI
HOW: High-resolution fast-spin echo MRI (resolution 100 x 100 x 200 µm3) in a fixed mouse liver.
USE: The dual blood vessel network of the liver complicates measuring the blood supply to this vital organ, and the interaction of the respective blood flow can be diagnostic of hepatic dysfunction and disease. Characterising the vessel tree can inform us on the ability of therapy to reach diseases such as cancer within the liver.
WHO: Rajiv Ramasawmy, Thomas Roberts, Angela D’Esposito
