The Cardiovascular BioImaging Core offers imaging techniques in vascular and cardiac ultrasound to provide a
comprehensive assessment of cardiovascular health in children and adults:
We provide expertise for obesity- and nutrition-related research, including the measurement of components of energy balance (e.g., energy expenditure and intake) and for assessing consequences of alterations in energy balance (e.g., body composition, substrate oxidation), and bone structure (HRpQT).
NEW!!! High Resolution peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography (HR-pQCT) is now available to obtain non-invasive 3D images at the distal tibia and distal radius of humans for clinical in vivo assessments of volumetric bone mineral density and parameters of bone quality (e.g., microarchitecture, geometry, porosity, and biomechanics). XtremeCT II HR-pQCT scanner images have a very small isotropic voxel size (60.7 μm) and very low radiation dose (≤5 μSv per scan/anatomical site) so the device can be used for studies performed in adult, adolescent, and pediatric populations.
