Contrast enhancement using curd and contrast agent mixtures for ex vivo vessel imaging in computed tomography.


PMID 24648237

Abstract

We describe a cheap and efficient method for filling the vascular space of ex vivo tissue samples with a radiopaque material that can be used in computed tomography imaging. The filling material consists of curd, water, and a radiological contrast agent. Viscosity ranges and the degree of attenuation of X-rays of the filling material can be easily adjusted to the requirements of a specific application. The method is non-destructive and without negative effects on subsequent histological examinations.
