PRECLINICAL ORGAN DYSFUNCTION OF THE
Therapeutic intervention of events caused by acute and chronic disease processes requires a detailed understanding of the mechanisms behind the injury. MSOT has been used to assess liver function in a range of liver injury models. The simple approach taken with MSOT can measure clearance of dyes like indocyanine green in real time to give a value of liver function that correlates well with traditional biomarkers. This approach allows non-invasive and easy monitoring of liver function through the full course of the disease process.
