Micro-CT: fancy gadget or indispensable technology towards accurate quantification of lung disease and therapy

About Followers Reviews Exhibitors Photos Speakers

Lung diseases such as fibrosis, viral infection and cancer are life-threatening conditions for which our knowledge on etiology and/or effective treatment options still contains important gaps. To unravel disease processes and to test novel therapeutic approaches, investigators typically rely on end-stage procedures (such as serum analysis, cyto-/chemokine profiles and selective tissue histology from animal models). These techniques are useful but provide only a snapshot of disease processes .. continue reading that are essentially dynamic in time and space. Technology allowing evaluation of live animals repeatedly is indispensable to gain better insight into the dynamics of lung disease progression and treatment. Computed tomography (CT) is a clinical standard and can have enormous benefits in a research context too. Yet, its implementation in basic and preclinical research laboratories lags behind. Nevertheless, the evidence for the benefits of micro-CT as an indispensable and safe tool to repeatedly evaluate lung disease progression and therapy efficacy in live animals is nothing but convincing.
