In vivo endoluminal ultrasound biomicroscopic imaging in a mouse model of colorectal cancer.

Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The gold-standard tool for colorectal cancer detection is colonoscopy, but it provides only mucosal surface visualization. Ultrasound biomicroscopy allows a clear delineation of the epithelium and adjacent colonic layers. The aim of this study was to design a system to generate endoluminal ultrasound biomicroscopic images of the… (More)
