Biomechanics and Multimodal Tissue Imaging Core


Biomechanics and Multimodal Tissue Imaging Core

Mission Statement

The primary mission of the BMTI Core is to provide high quality, consistent, efficient and cost-effective services for imaging and biomechanical testing of musculoskeletal tissues from small animal models of musculoskeletal trauma and disease. These services include:

* State-of-the-art ex vivo and in vivo micro computed tomography (microCT)

* Molecular multispectral in vivo imaging

* Dynamic ultrasound imaging

* Biomechanical testing of tissues in various modes of loading

We also aim at providing consulting services to enhance and refine imaging modalities and novel image processing algorithms to derive correlates of functional healing that can be translated from the bench to the bedside.
