Below is a QUICK TIP regarding Crump Imaging Core standard procedures now available for use in RATS 2.0.
The following Crump Imaging Core procedures are now available in the Standard Library:
|CRUMP IMAGING CORE: microPET Imaging||Mouse||Imaging|
|CRUMP IMAGING CORE: microPET Imaging||Rat||Imaging|
|CRUMP IMAGING CORE: microCT Imaging||Rat||Imaging|
|CRUMP IMAGING CORE: microCT Imaging||Mouse||Imaging|
|CRUMP IMAGING CORE: Optical Imaging||Mouse||Imaging|
|CRUMP IMAGING CORE: Optical Imaging||Rat||Imaging|
To find the Crump Imaging Core standard procedures, click on IACUC, Standard Library, and under the Procedures tab, you can type “%crump imaging core” into the search bar:
These procedures do not include the use of probes or contrast agents. If your lab will be using probes or contrast agents during imaging, you will need to create a separate Team Substance Administration procedure to accompany the imaging procedure you choose.
To create a Team Substance Administration procedure, first search the Standard Library to locate the probe or contrast agent you intend to use (note: we recommend using a %wildcard search to improve the results of your search). If the substance you seek cannot be located, you will need to create a team substance. You can then create a Substance Administration procedure, in which you will add the substance (from the standard library or the team substance you created). After the procedure is created, add the Substance Administration procedure to your experiment along with the Crump Imaging Core standard procedure.
Thank you to our colleagues in the Crump Imaging Core for their partnership in preparing these procedures for use.
