Developing tissue mimicking materials can be helpful in reducing the cost and duration of experiments which otherwise require animals. We tested a variety of agarose gels of different gel strength as suitable tissue mimicking material for convection enhanced delivery. The results demonstrate a significant difference in infusion volume and we relate that, through MR measurements, to the mechanical stiffness of the gels.
