Mice are valuable laboratory animals, with a long history of use in medical research. However, the use of mice in biomedical research has come under increasing criticism in recent years. The reasons include the high mortality of rodents used in laboratories and the misuse of data derived from these studies. Today’s more sophisticated requirements for animal testing have also raised questions about the value of using mice to test new drugs and treatments before they are officially released into the human bloodstream. Mouse imaging is a powerful tool for diagnosing diseases, monitoring treatments or monitoring drug doses. This can be done on a variety of species, including rats, dogs, cattle and even cockroaches (if you’re feeling brave). This guide explains everything you need to know about using mice imaging for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
What is mice imaging?
Mice imaging, also known as subcellular analysis, is the use of special mice to study specific components of the body, such as the muscles, connective tissue or organs. The term “mice” is often used in reference to the musky smell that surrounds the entire animal. While the use of other animals in biomedical research has been declining in recent years, the use of mice in clinical diagnosis and therapeutic treatments has increased dramatically. This increase in use can be attributed in part to the development of more sensitive and specific radiology methods now available for the study of mice. These can detect very minute differences between people that may indicate disease or other conditions.
How does mice imaging work?
Mice can be used to study a wide range of medical disorders, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and autoimmune disorders. Mice are not humans, but they are very close to us in the evolutionary chain. They are also good models for studying many human diseases, such as cancer. After the introduction of the first radioimmunoassay (RIA) in mice in the 1980s, a wide variety of radiology methods were developed to study the tissue biochemistry and imaging capabilities of mice. Nowadays, a whole animal model for almost any disease can be created by visceral mice. This allows researchers to study a wide range of diseases, including those that are extremely rare in humans, such as chronic wasting disease (CWD) in deer and other animals and scrapie in sheep and other animals.
