Preclinical Lung Imaging with MRI and MicroCT

A greater understanding of lung structure and function is vital for comprehension of the effects of and development of treatment for Covid-19. While many Bruker customers have been performing pulmonary research for years, other have stepped up to the current challenge. Read on for more about researchers frontline response to Covid-19 as well as their fundamental lung investigations. 

Frontline response to COVID-19

Pre-clinical research is an important step before introducing a new therapy to humans. Imaging is one of the most crucial ways of seeing how a therapeutic treatment is interacting with the cells in the body. However, many imaging techniques have downfalls and a suitable way to overcome this is by combining techniques – such as MRI and CT.

Non-invasive Preclinical Lung Imaging: A Pharmaceutical Perspective

Non invasive Preclinical Lung Imaging

The incidence of respiratory disease is increasing throughout the world, and the demand for safe, effective drugs to tackle conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia and lung cancer is rising. But the journey of a drug candidate from discovery through to production is a long and costly one, with a low approval rate.

Hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI of Pulmonary Gas-Exchange in Rodents

Background webinar 7 may xre website

Hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI has emerged as a powerful technique to evaluate lung function and has found clinical application in several disorders like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and more

Quantitative evaluation of pulmonary function with hyperpolarized xenon gas MR

Banner webinar 18 june 2020

Hyperpolarized 129Xe MR has been proven to be a powerful tool to evaluate the pulmonary function and has been widely used to study various lung diseases. Preclinical studies have advantages in exploring the feasibility of hyperpolarized 129Xe MR in diagnosing lung diseases and developing new techniques and application strategies.
