Ultrafast Contrast-enhanced Ultrasound to Measure Local Blood Flow after SCI

Aim 1: Develop contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging for visualizing local blood flow after spinal cord injury.

Aim 2: Validate contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging for quantification of local blood flow.

Aim 3: Establish correlation between acute spinal perfusion characteristics and chronic spinal tissue pathology and functional outcomes after moderate and severe spinal injuries.
