Accumulating evidence indicates that tumour growth is angiogenesis-dependent. Non-invasive assessment of the relationship between tumour growth and associated angiogenesis is essential for diagnosis and for therapeutic interventions. We utilized a combination of high-resolution T2-weighted and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the dynamics of angiogenesis during tumour growth in a mouse tumour model expressing Epstein-Barr virus-encoded latent membrane protein… CONTINUE READING
