Cardiovascular disease

We have a strong focus on imaging of pathophysiology in cardiovascular diseases. Using relevant animals models of cardiovascular disease and longitudinal study designs we can follow therapeutic interventions by non-invasive imaging. Studies can be designed to take advantage of in-depth capabilities of microsurgery to establish e.g. myocardial infarction and ischemia-reperfusion models in rodents and larger species. Also, we have a long track record of using PET/CT imaging to monitor vascular inflammation in atherosclerosis.
