Using Optical Imaging to Enhance Your Oncology Preclinical Studies

Applying imaging (bioluminescence, fluorescence and PET) to in vivo oncology studies can provide key information about tumor growth in a natural tissue-specific location in a variety of models when compared with traditional flank models using caliper measurements. These models include:

  • Patient-derived xenografts (PDX)
  • Syngeneic
  • Orthotopic
  • Disseminated

This webinar provides an overview of how Charles River is applying optical imaging to provide cost-effective insight into studies and discusses the translatability of these modalities.
