Weekday Educational Course:
Tools & Tips for Mouse Imaging & Spectroscopy
Organizers: Klaas Nicolay, Ph.D., and Ivan Tkac, Ph.D.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Monday, 3 May 2010
16:30 18:30

This two-hour course will provide practical recommendations for mouse screening using MRI and MRS techniques. It will provide information necessary for optimizing the experimental protocol, cover animal handling, etc. Further, this course will offer tips and tools to optimize mouse screening, e.g. reduce the time requirements and at the same time maximize anatomical and biochemical information. There are many rapid developments ongoing in this field, and this course will offer a fresh update.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
  • Select optimal anesthesia and physiological monitoring;
  • Design optimal protocols for efficient mouse screening;
  • Describe the most efficient MRI and MRS techniques for mouse screening; and
  • Optimize experimental protocols for maximum efficacy and high reproducibility.
