The Cardiovascular Imaging Core Research Laboratory is able to arm investigators with an array of imaging and measurement tools.
2-D, M-mode and color flow Doppler echocardiographyTissue velocity imaging, strain rate analysisStress echoWall stress analysisMicro-ultrasonography and Doppler echocardiography for small animals
Arterial stiffness Measures
We also offer additional services for investigators. The lab offers a vascular workshop, “Vascular Structure and Function Assessment.” We also present a yearly seminar that provides educational resources in state-of-the-art cardiac procedures, technique and science. Also, our state-of-the-art, comprehensive offline measuring software databases can manage your data design, and our business department serves as a resource for grant and industry funded projects.
The CICRL has provided cardiac support for NIH and industry funded research investigating cardiac function and structure in Pediatrics and Adults.
Cardiac imaging is conducted by 2 full time Registered Cardiac Sonographers performing 2D, Doppler, and Tissue Doppler imaging for diastolic function. The CICRL has provided cardiac support for NIH and industry funded research investigating cardiac function and structure in Pediatrics and Adults.
Echocardiography-for Cardiac Structure & Function.
Doppler & Tissue Imaging for Diastolic Function
Vascular Imaging; Carotid Intima Media Thickness
Carotid Intima Media Thickness: Carotid Bifurcation Optimal Angle of Interrogation (OAI)
Vascular Testing- Right Brachial Artery Immediate Post Deflation Reactive Hyperemia
Carotid Artery Ultrasound for Intima-Media Thickness - Longitudinal view of the carotid artery
Carotid Artery Ultrasound for Intima-Media Thickness - IMT measurement
Brachial Flow Mediated Dilation for Endothelial Function- Ultrasound measures diameter change after brachial artery occlusion
Brachial Artery Distensibility- Pulsemetric derives brachial artery distensibility using pulse dynamic analysis of arterial pressure signals obtained from a standard cuff sphygmomanometer. Oscillometric BPs also provided.
We offer investigators state-of-the-art imaging equipment, which enhances both the quality of research and the time efficiency of projects. Our ultrasound systems offer 2D imaging, PW/CW Doppler, M-mode, Color Flow, Harmonic Imaging, and Tissue Doppler.
The Cardiovascular Imaging Core equipment includes:1 Philips IE331 Philips IU22 that includes phased array cardiac, linear vascular, and a curved linear abdominal vascular probe.2 General Electric Vivid 7 ultrasound machines with phased array cardiac and linear vascular probes. The machines offer the following features:1 GE Vivid i ultrasound machine with phased array cardiac / linear vascular probesNon-imaging vascular equipment includes:2 DynaPulse (brachial artery distensibility)2 EndoPat (reactive hyperemic index)1 Hokanson (venous plethysmography)1 Perimed (laser flow Doppler)3 SpyghmoCor (augmentation index and pulse wave velocity)
