3-D imaging system available for WSU researchers to use

Ivis-80PULLMAN, Wash. – A new piece of equipment will allow Washington State University researchers to do high-precision, long-term studies using fewer animals and chemicals, potentially reducing costs and increasing the validity of results.

With the IVIS (in vivo imaging systems) Spectrum CT (http://www.perkinelmer.com/Catalog/Product/ID/IVISSCT), scientists will be able to track, measure and create 3-D images of such things as tumor growth and the movement of infection and drugs in anaesthetized live animals over time.
