Laboratory mouse image developed using KODAK 1D image analysis software, allowing precise co-registration of a fluorescent molecular biomarker with the anatomical radiograph.

Eastman Kodak of Rochester, NY, has developed a module for its Image Station 2000MM Multimodal Imaging System that precisely coregisters X-ray images of lab animals with fluorescent, luminescent, or radioisotopic images generated using molecular markers.

"We are giving researchers the ability to see the anatomic structure of an animal with the in vivo molecular activity of interest in a system that is priced to go into just about any laboratory," says William McLaughlin, manager of business and product development in Kodak's Scientific Imaging Systems group http://www.kodak.com/US/en/health/scientific.

The digital X-Ray Imaging Module fits like a lid onto Kodak's IS2000MM, which was designed to capture and coregister white-light images of an animal (or...
