Tumor Vascular Network

|Title:||Tumor Vascular Network|
The microenvironment that surrounds a tumor plays a crucial role in helping cancer to grow and evade destruction. This image of the vascular network in a mouse model for HER2-positive breast cancer uses a novel imaging technique called transparent tumor tomography that three-dimensionally visualizes the tumor microenvironment at a single cell resolution. Smooth muscle cells (red), endothelial cells (cyan), and fibroblast (green) in a whole xenografted TUBO (BALB-neuT clone) tumor.
