In vivo 4D dual gated cardiac CT

ExiTron nano 12000

4D cardiac-respiratory gated CT of the mouse heart

We herein provide a 4D cardiac-respiratory gated CT imaging method to effectively perform in vivo cardiac imaging in mice. By a combination of the U-CTUHR μCT system (, Utrecht, the Netherlands) and the contrast agent ExiTron nano 12000, exceptionally high quality in vivo CT images of the beating mouse heart can be obtained at high speed and at low radiation dose.
