Project description

Purchase of a high-frequency ultrasound system (Visualsonics VEVO 2100) for medical imaging in small animals (mice). The equipment is available for third parties via Infinity, the UGent small animal imaging facility. The system can alsobe used to visualize superficial structures (<2cm deep) in humans.
