Abstract

We present photoacoustic images of tumor neovascularization obtained over a 10-day period after subcutaneous inoculation of pancreatic tumor cells in a rat. The images were obtained from ultrasound generated by absorption in hemoglobin of short laser pulses at a wavelength of 1064 nm. The ultrasound signals were measured in reflection mode using a single scanning piezodetector, and images were reconstructed with a weighted delay-and-sum algorithm. Three-dimensional data visualize the development and quantify the extent of individual blood vessels around the growing tumor, blood concentration changes inside the tumor and growth in depth of the neovascularized region.

Fig. 1.

Serial photographs of the tumor inoculation site on the hind limb of the animal, on day 3 (a), day 7 (b), day 8 (c) and day 10 (d).

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Photoacoustic images: maximum intensity projections of the acoustic source strength in the xy-plane (top view on the tissue, with in each pixel the maximum value found in all voxels below that pixel) on the indicated days (tumor cells inoculated on day 1). The color scaling in all images relates to the same absolute value. Therefore the images reveal the development of the amplitude of the photoacoustic signals during the tumor growth process.

Fig. 3.

Depth development of blood vessels. Slices of 150 micrometers thickness in the xz-plane, evenly distributed over the next ranges of y-positions: Fig. a (day 3): 0<y<6.75 mm; Fig. b, c, d (day 7–10): 0<y<15 mm; Images for day 3 are numbered 1..10 in the order of increasing y-position with image 1 at y=0 mm, with identical order for the other days. The thin white line indicates the skin contour.
