Investigations in this report demonstrate the versatility of ultrasound-based patterning and imaging technologies for studying determinants of vascular morphogenesis in 3D environments. Forces associated with ultrasound standing wave fields (USWFs) were employed to non-invasively and volumetrically pattern endothelial cells within 3D collagen hydrogels. Patterned hydrogels were composed of parallel bands of endothelial cells located at nodal regions of the USWF and spaced at intervals equal to… CONTINUE READING
