A Study of Ultrasound Elastography Using Porcine Renal Tissue

Animal Models with Porcine Renal TissuePorcine renal tissue is useful in studying ultrasound elastography, a method of measuring the graft health of a transplanted kidney.

A recent study by researchers at the University of British Columbia found that blood pressure plays a role as a confounding factor in measuring the elasticity of the renal tissue.

Studying Injectable Biomaterials on Porcine Tissue

injectable materials for porcine tissueAs we’ve pointed out multiple times on this blog, porcine tissue is used in research because of pigs’ biological similarities to humans.

That was the case yet again in a study conducted by researchers from the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Biological Sciences at Rowan University and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Drexel University.
