Rat Kidney BriteVu Perfusion for Research

Rat Kidney BriteVu Perfusion for Research

BriteVu perfused rat kidney CT scanned at 30 µm. Courtesy of the Head Injury and Vessel Biomechanics Lab at the University of Utah. The whole rat was perfused for a brain vasculature study.  However all of the tissues were well infiltrated with BriteVu creating incredible perfusions throughout the body.

Rat Eye BriteVu Arteriovenogram

Rat Eye BriteVu Arteriovenogram

Window to the soul.  An arteriovenogram reached the eye of a rat and, combined with micro CT, produced a detailed map of the blood supply to and within the eye.  The central (black) portion represents the iris which is immediately outlined by the blood supply to the iris.  The back half of the eye has been digitally removed to create a clearer picture.  CT scan at 10µm.  Courtesy of the Head Injury and Vessel Biomechanics Lab at the University of…

Rat Heart Perfused with BriteVu CT Contrast Agent

Rat Heart Perfused with BriteVu CT Contrast Agent

Rat heart perfused with BriteVu contrast agent. As a part of a study at the Head Injury and Vessel Biomechanics Lab at the University of Utah, the whole rat was perfused and individual organs were CT scanned for detailed analysis. The 10 µm CT scan shows individual blood vessels in the heart muscle and on the outside (especially along the coronary groove). By understanding vascular flow, researchers can determine areas of increased and decreased blood supply to different parts of the…

BriteVu Perfused Rat Brain

BriteVu Perfused Rat Brain

Stewart Yeoh from the Head Injury and Vessel Biomechanics Lab at the University of Utah provided this image of a BriteVu perfused rat brain. This is plain light photography of the dorsal surface of the brain.  The surface vessels are readily visible and contain BriteVu high contrast agent.  The vasculature inside the brain tissue is also well perfused and can be seen in the light histology slide also provided by Stewart Yeoh in this gallery.

BriteVu Perfused Rat Brain

BriteVu Perfused Rat Brain

Stewart Yeoh from the Head Injury and Vessel Biomechanics Lab at the University of Utah provided this image of a BriteVu perfused rat brain. The dark lines represent blood vessels in the brain. This is a 200 µm slice with no stain, filters or special lighting (basic white light used). From the orientation of the vessels you can get a sense of how blood flows within the brain.

CAT Scan of a Rat Head Using BriteVu

CAT Scan of a Rat Head  Using BriteVu

Rat head (whole body) perfused with BriteVu contrast media.  Rat head was scanned at 35 µm resolution.  Courtesy of Stewart Yeoh from the Head Injury and Vessel Biomechanics Lab at the University of Utah.  The nose is to the right and eye is approximately in the center of the image.
