Raster-scan optoacoustic angiography of blood vessel development in colon cancer models

Raster-scan optoacoustic angiography at 532 nm wavelength with 50 μm lateral resolution at 2 mm diagnostic depth was used for quantitative characterization of neoangiogenesis in colon cancer models. Two tumor models of human colon adenocarcinoma (HT-29) and murine colon carcinoma (CT26) different in their histology and vascularization were compared. Tumors of both origins showed an inhomogeneous distribution of areas with high and low vascularization. Rapidly growing CT26 …
