Interview with Dr. Matthew Leevy: Recent Advances in Imaging Modalities

Dr. Matthew Leevy, Director of the Biological Imaging Core at University of Norte Dame, comments on recent advances in imaging modalities that are challenging traditional methods of pre-clinical study.  Two trends in particular are of note: increased ease of use of advanced equipment, and enhanced multi-modality features. This allows users access to sophisticated systems which provide fast, complete information.  Reduction of barriers will continue, allowing the development of a broad imaging community which can grow and share multi-modal model strategies.
