Welcome to the Small Animal Echocardiography Core Facility
The Small Animal Echocardiography Core provides an imaging resource to support cardiovascular phenotyping efforts. The Core staff offers expertise, materials, training, consultation, access to equipment and performs scanning and analysis on a fee for service basis. Ordering information, a detailed description of services and protocols are available through this website. The Core serves Investigators affiliated with the Medical College of Wisconsin on a first come, first served basis. Time lines for projects vary according to the nature of the project and current workload of the Core. Information about fees is available from the Core Medical Director. Successful and timely animal scanning and data analysis requires a concerted, collaborative effort of the Investigator and the Core staff in all stages of the experiment. Investigators planning on utilizing Core services are therefore encouraged to contact the staff early in the planning stages of the experiment.
