Share Article

LabRoots will host the webinar June 7, in which participants will gain a better understanding of microCT, it’s benefits, and combining microCT with MRI.

Greetje Vande Velde Assistant Professor, KU Leuven

Through this webinar, which is sponsored by Bruker, attendees will get a look at how non-invasive imaging can yield much better results at the preclinical stage and how the ethics of preclinical research can also be improved. Expect to see how the Skyscan 1278 microCT in combination with a BioSpec 9.4 T MRI can be used to improve the data generated from animals, regardless of the species or disease type. Viewers should also expect to see the many benefits this technique offers, as well as the types of disease that it is useful for.

The speaker for this webinar will be Professor Greetje Vande Velde, an assistant professor at the University of Leuven.

Vande Velde will give an overview of her work, which involves lung and brain infections. She will describe how high-field MRI and low dose microCT complement each other; where microCT gives high contrast in the lungs and MRI allows clear visualization of the brain. The webinar will introduce the use of the Skyscan 1278 microCT from Bruker, that was used in Professor Vande Velde’s experiments.

Vande Velde is an assistant professor in Imaging and Pathology at the University of Leuven. Since completing her doctorate, she has held multiple research positions within and outside the university and has published over 60 journal papers focused on imaging lung diseases and infections.

LabRoots will host the webinar June 7, 2018, beginning at 7:00 a.m. PDT, 4:00 p.m. CEST. To learn more about this event, discover the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
