Bioimaging Part II: Equipment, Facilities, and Workflows
June 19, 2019
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CT

WEB-051: Preclinical imaging technologies are powerful because they can propel science forward with fewer animals (consistent with the 3Rs), preserve tissues for additional assays, and empower translational studies. However, integrating imaging technologies into larger organizations is complex, requires deep knowledge of multiple fields, and a multidisciplinary team. Through this two-part series of webinars, we aim to educate on the strategic advantages that imaging technologies can bring to a scientific organization: how to select equipment, design facilities, and which key stakeholders to engage to make a successful imaging enterprise: and highlight the animal science required to conduct successful experiments.

In the second webinar of the two-part series, we will explore how to design and operate a successful imaging program. We will consider the factors of throughput, animal species, fields of study, and the network of key stakeholders that are involved in making a functional operation. Key stake holders include biologists, operations staff, information technologies, facilities, regulatory bodies (IACUC, radiation safety, and EH&S), laboratory animal professionals, and clinical translational teams. First, we will characterize the workflow requirements by study design, model induction, image acquisition, and data handling. These requirements dictate the facility design and operation plans involving animal transport, personnel access, foot traffic, biosecurity and security, power and shielding, HVAC and waste gas management. We will then discuss how to assemble a team with the expertise needed for a successful program. Finally, we will focus on the computing resources required to support data structures and data storage in a bioimaging facility.

The fee is per connection; one connection can be used for site or group training. If multiple connection are needed, please place and order per connection. Discounts are available by using the Store Order Form PDF when yuo purchase 5 or more connections. 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 convenient for you: Share the presentation recording afterward with your staff. AALAS will provide the link to view the webinar recording to all registrants several days after the webinar concludes. Within 1 to 3 business days after ordering the webinar, you will be sent an email with a link to register and view the webinar on the GoToWebinar website.

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

RACE CEs: This program 37-36582 is approved by the AAVSB RACE to offer a total of 1.00 CE Credit (1.00 max) being available to any one veterinarian: and/or 1.00 Veterinary Technician CE Credits (1.00 max). This RACE approval is for the subject matter category of Medical Program. This approval is valid in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE; however, participants are responsible for ascertaining each board's CE requirements. RACE does not "accredit" or "endorse" or "certify" any program or person, nor does RACE approval validate the content of the program.

Following the webinar, certificate templates will be sent to the individual who registered on behalf of their institution.
