New Research Explores the Tumor Microenvironment Post-Embolization
Microvascular perfusion analysis with embolization to angiographic stasis. Representative perfusion maps generated from MATLAB processed data (CD31+ microvessels and lectin perfusion markers; from a Vx2 tumor illustrate localization of the microvasculature. The perfusion map legend indicates the color that represents the perfusion status of the microvasculature after substasis embolization. The box in the perfusion map of the entire tumor cross section indicates the region of magnification for the perfusion map zoom.
