The present study sought to establish a standard in vivo imaging procedure for mouse kidney anatomy evaluation using contrast-enhanced high-resolution X-ray microtomography (micro-CT). Micro-CT estimation of kidney volume was compared with ex vivo measurement by micro-CT and water displacement. Control values were obtained in four strains (BALB/c, C3H/HeN, 129/Sv and C57BL/6J) of healthy male and female mice aged 22 +/- 2 weeks. An excellent correlation was found between in vivo and ex vivo… CONTINUE READING
