Your Needs

Non-invasive imaging technologies enable repetitive evaluations of live models for quantitative measurements of disease progression over time. Get a quicker read on efficacy — early and over the course of treatment. With our ability to apply multiple imaging modalities to a particular study, you also gain valuable insight into which modalities are most appropriate for studying a disease state. This insight can be leveraged later when you progress to the clinic.

Imaging can also play a crucial role in model recruitment. Using non-invasive in vivo imaging to eliminate non-responders early helps you conserve test material and accelerate your results.

With a variety of state-of-the-art imaging modalities, including CT, DEXA, MRI/S, ultrasound and laser Doppler imaging, we match the best modality to what you need to measure, including tissue structure, composition or function. In fact, our team frequently brings multiple modalities to bear on a single study to ensure you get the insight you need. The power of imaging takes your understanding of your molecule to the next level.

As exciting as our imaging platforms are, it’s our integrated team approach that provides you with the greatest advantage. Imaging services are an integrated element of your Lead Optimization study — where you also have access to a wide range of models and ancillary support services. From pharmacology and veterinary services to formulations and pathology assessments, you are connected to a complete package of integrated services with an interactive, collaborative study design team.
