A photon counting CT imaging pipeline for cardiac phenotyping in APOE mice

Our new study develops an advanced imaging pipeline using photon-counting CT to assess cardiac structure & function in mouse models of apolipoprotein E gene variations. Results highlight genotype-specific cardiovascular differences and the impact of diet.
