Understanding the tumor microenvironment is critical to characterizing how cancers operate and predicting how they will eventually respond to treatment. The mouse window chamber model is an excellent tool for cancer research, because it enables high resolution tumor imaging and cross-validation using multiple modalities. We describe a novel multimodality imaging system that incorporates three dimensional (3D) photoacoustics with pulse echo ultrasound for imaging the tumor microenvironment and… Expand
3-D photoacoustic and pulse echo imaging of prostate tumor progression in the mouse window chamber.
TLDR
A novel, high-resolution coregistered photoacoustic and pulse echo ultrasound system used to image the tumor microenvironment is described and is able to track the underlying vascular network and identify hemorrhaging, while PA spectroscopy helps classify blood vessels according to their optical absorption spectrum, suggesting variation in blood oxygen saturation.

Spatial and spectral regularization to discriminate tissues using multispectral photoacoustic imaging
TLDR
This study presents a regularization method to segment multispectral photoacoustic images based on both the spatial and spectral features of the dataset pixels, adapted from the spatiotemporal mean-shift approach and cluster patterns with similar spectral profiles. Expand
Multifunctionalized microbubbles for cancer diagnosis and therapy.
TLDR
Recent developments on microbubbles, especially multifunctionalized MBs, are reviewed as a potential drug/gene delivery microdevices for both diagnosis and therapy of malignant tumors. Expand

Effect of longitudinal oxygen gradients on effectiveness of manipulation of tumor oxygenation.
TLDR
The tumor surface is refractory to improvement in pO(2) with this method: the fascial surface has arterioles and higher vascular density than tumor; and the tumor surface has no arteriole. Expand
Perivascular oxygen tensions in a transplantable mammary tumor growing in a dorsal flap window chamber.
TLDR
The low perivascular oxygen tensions observed near the tumor center combined with the theoretical considerations suggest, for this model at least, that tissue oxygenation may best be improved by increasing red cell velocity and input pO2 and reducing oxygen consumption. Expand
