Summary: 3-D Reconstruction of Tumor Vascular Networks
Most solid tumors consist of optically dense tissue. Therefore
intravital visualization of its complete vasculature with
topological and morphological details is difficult. We propose a
method to reconstruct tumor vascular networks using confocal
intravital microscopy and a dedicated software system.
INTRODUCTION VASCULAR MIDLINES ­ INITIALIZATION
CONCLUSION
Reconstruction of tumor vascular networks in
optically dense tissue with disorganized
topology is possible using semi-automatic
software. This application provides a useful
tool to help understanding the mechanisms of
tumor angiogenesis and tumor growth.
