Airway Remodeling in Ferrets with Cigarette Smoke Induced COPD using µCT Imaging
by Denise Stanford, MS, The University of Alabama at Birmingham
Ferrets are a recently established animal model uniquely exhibiting similar clinical and pathological characteristics of COPD as humans, including chronic bronchitis but are also instrumental for COVID-19 research. This talk describes a µCT method for evaluating structural changes to the airways in ferrets and how the MILabs µCT can be used as a significant translational platform to measure dynamic airway morphological changes.
