Order the December Webinar


The webinar will include how anesthesia, temperature, injection technique and cold stress related to housing conditions all can alter animal physiology and affect metabolic imaging data. Small changes in handling or housing could have significant impact on animal physiology, thus experimental design and methods used are crucial to understand and document. The discussion will focus on strategies and solutions to measure and control or mitigate these physiological effects on metabolic imaging studies. Order here.

The fee is per connection; one connection can be used for site or group training. If multiple connections are needed, please place an order per connection. The 1.5 hour time frame will allow for plenty of time to submit your questions, thus giving you a more personalized training experience. Time and date not convenient for you? Share the presentation recording afterwards with your staff. AALAS will provide the link to download the webinar recording to all registrants shortly after the webinar concludes.

David Stout, PhD. Dr. Stout has a 25+ year background at the University of California - Los Angles in radiochemistry and cyclotron operations, design of preclinical imaging centers, instrumentation design for PET, CT and optical systems and managing a wide range of projects. For 13 years as director of the Crump Preclinical Technology Center, Dr. Stout helped design experiments, taught staff, students, post-docs, and faculty how to analyze metabolic data. Dr. Stout's accomplishments include investigations into a myriad of ways to support preclinical research and efficiently use imaging devices in practical and reproducible ways to ensure optimal data are collected and analyzed. Dr. Stout has delivered numerous presentations worldwide on biomaging in animal models. His publications in the field animal imaging include 73 peer-reviewed articles and chapters in 4 books.

Audience: Anyone involved in planning or conducting bioimaging studies or housing animals used in such studies, including researchers, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, senior laboratory animal technicians, and facility managers.

RACE Continuing Education (CE) Units: This program has been approved for 1 hour of continuing education credit in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE approval. Participants should be aware that some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions on certain methods of delivery of continuing education. Provided by AALAS, RACE Provider Number 37.

AALAS CEUs: You can apply for up to 1.5 CEU for the Technician Certification Registry or CMAR recertification. Please use the forms on the AALAS website or online CEU submission.

Following the webinar, certificate templates (RACE and AALAS) will be sent to the individuals who registered on behalf of their institution. The registrant will have the responsibility to distribute certificates to the webinar participants at their institution.
