Vevo 3100 High-Frequency Ultrasound

The VisualSonics Vevo 3100 High-Frequency Ultrasound system allows high-resolution small animal ultrasound examinations for non-invasive measures of structure and function. Investigators can perform comprehensive cardiac exams, characterize liver and kidney blood flow, measure arterial stiffness, image tumor growth, and more.

AM-Mode (Anatomical Motion)

  • Anatomical Motion mode allows the user to steer the sample volume to any angle rather than containing it strictly in a vertical position.

Color Doppler Mode

  • 2D and 3D Color Flow acquisition for blood flow velocity analysis using advanced digital signal processing techniques.

Contrast Imaging Functionality

  • Perfusion Analysis using destruction/reperfusion quantification.
  • Biomarker quantification tools when using Vevo MicroMarker Target-Ready Contrast Agents.


  • Acquisition can be triggered at one or two points in the cardiac cycle.

LV Analysis

  • Improved and repeatable LV function analysis.
  • LV trace can be generated automatically with one button (Auto LV).

M-Mode (Motion Mode)

  • Single line acquisition that allows high temporal resolution for LV functional analysis.

Power Doppler Mode

  • 2D and 3D Power Doppler acquisition for the visualization of slow velocity flow and relative quantification of smaller vessels using advanced digital sign processing techniques.

VevoCQ Advanced Contrast

  • Quantification Software for perfusion and targeted signal analysis.
  • Perfusion parameters (including amplitude and time) derived from a curve-fitting algorithm for bolus kinetics and replenishment kinetics following destruction reperfusion.
  • Spatial rendering is available in the form of parametric maps.
  • Data can be exported in .tiff, .bmp, .wmv files and. tsv formats.

Vevo Strain Software

  • Analysis suite provides tools for myocardial strain, strain rate, and time-to-peak analysis.
  • The feature also includes a dynamic assessment of myocardial velocity and displacement.

Vevo Vasc Software

  • The analysis suite provides tools for vascular strain, strain rate, and displacement.
  • This feature also includes Pulse Propagation Velocity assessment.
