Join Dr. Sicard for an examination of the systemic effects of myocardial infarction using high-frequency ultrasound and photoacoustics.
In this webinar, Pierre Sicard, PhD, a Research Engineer at INSERM in Montpellier, France, presented how real-time measures of vascular hypoxia are detected in the heart, brain and peripheral organs post-infarct. He shared cutting-edge multi-modal anatomical, physiological, and oxygenation data from his extensive work in the field.
Key Topics Include:
- Photoacoustic Imaging (PAI) is able to detect and track hypoxia in the LV anterior wall after myocardial infarction
- Experimental myocardial infarction induced an early and transient decrease of sO2 in the brain, kidney, and liver
- sO2 level in vital organs was significantly correlated with LV dysfunction and circulating biomarkers (creatinine, ASAT, and ALAT)
- Non-invasive PAI enabled a robust and time-dependent sO2 mapping in peripheral organs and the brain after MI
Who Should Attend?
Researchers at any level who study myocardial infarction or ischemia anywhere in the body, those interested in photoacoustics or anyone interested in the use of ultrasound for imaging rodent models.
