December 2020: Measuring vascular stiffness in aging mice using high resolution vascular ultrasound

This is a recording of a LIVE webinar presented by Kirsty Foote, PhD, Post-Doctoral Research Associate at Addenbrooke's Centre for Clinical Investigation, Addenbrooke's Hospital, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK on December 16th, 2020.

Topics discussed in this webinar:

  • Importance of evaluating vascular changes and vascular decline in aging mice
  • Methodology for measuring vascular changes using ultrasound (vessel dimensions, speckle tracking and PPV)
  • Detection of changes in vascular-specific genetic models
  • Detailed characterization of vascular function, applicable to a range of vascular studies
