We love taking a peek at open-access research articles, and we love sharing our finds with fellow readers even more. We recently came across an article on imaging and tumor growth from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. The study described in the article compared the utility of non-invasive optical and ultrasound imaging to monitor growth of three diverse human tumor xenografts growing in nude mice. Researchers examined acute vascular disruption using Bioluminescence imaging, fluorescence imaging, and Power Doppler ultrasound. The results of the study confirm the utility of Bioluminescence imaging and Power Doppler ultrasound imaging as facile assays of the vascular disruption in solid tumors based on ATO as a model agent.
