Four-week individual caging of male ICR mice alters body composition without change in body mass

Could individual caging affect the physical composition of outbred mice? To investigate this, dual X-ray absorptiometry was used to compare the mass, bone mineral content and density between group and individual caged mice.

"Photoacoustics combined with high-resolution ultrasound is an amazing technology allowing molecular imaging with a resolution of an anatomical imager. In our laboratory, we use VEVO LAZR X not only for development of novel photoacoustics contrasts but also for cardiology projects and tumor vascularization research."
