SAN DIEGO, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Results using Fenestra(TM), a family of contrast agents for microCT and CT imaging developed by Alerion Biomedical Inc., will be featured in presentations by leading academic researchers during the Medical Imaging Symposium held February 12 - 17 in San Diego, CA as part of the annual meeting of SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering.

Fenestra overcomes the low soft tissue contrast inherent in microCT imaging. In vivo contrast enhancement is available through two unique formulations: Fenestra(TM) VC for prolonged contrast enhancement in the vasculature and Fenestra(TM) LC for long-lasting hepatobiliary contrast enhancement. In addition to providing superior visualization, Fenestra is compatible with repeat administration, eliminating the need to sacrifice and assay multiple animals during longitudinal studies.

"The popularity of Fenestra continues to increase as more researchers learn about the value the technology brings to small animal imaging in particular using computed tomography," said Dr. Douglas Bakan Alerion's Vice President of Business Development. "We are pleased to offer a product line that makes a significant impact in both the quality and the types of studies that can be performed with CT and microCT imaging."
