Presenter: Hemi Dimant, Ph.D. | Director of Applications for Advanced Pathology Services, Invicro
In drug discovery research, various imaging modalities are used to inform on the pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic, biodistribution and cellular localization of test articles. Even though a broad range of image resolution, temporal resolution and spatial resolution is required to answer biological questions, no single imaging modality is able to satisfy them all. With current imaging modalities, a large gap exists between traditional in vivo imaging that offers imaging of large volume samples with low resolution, while microscopy offers imaging of small volume samples with high resolution. Cryofluorescence tomography (CFT) bridges that gap by providing the resolution and sensitivity required. By filling that gap, CFT is utilized in multimodality discovery studies in which several scientific questions can be addressed in a single study.
