Join Professor Annarosa Arcangeli as she discusses the use of multi-modal imaging to detect and monitor pancreatic and liver tumors.

In oncology, optical imaging provides only one piece of the puzzle, with new methods and approaches continually being developed to provide additional information. In the first episode of the Vevo 4 Oncology Web Series, Prof. Arcangeli discusses a new and powerful, high resolution multi-modal imaging solution that combines ultra high frequency ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging. Several applications of this system are presented, including tumor/polyp detection and sizing in 2D and 3D, detection and monitoring of tumor growth and angiogenesis, as well as others.

Key Topics Include:

  • Tumor cell guided injection
  • Tumor/polyp detection and sizing in 2D and 3D
  • Detection and monitoring of tumor growth and angiogenesis
  • Pancreatic tumor perfusion and volume quantification
  • Contrast-enhanced imaging of biomarkers
  • Coregistration of ultra-high-resolution ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging to detect tumor oxygen saturation

For almost thirty years, Dr. Arcangeli has been involved in studies aimed at defining the biophysical aspects of intracellular signaling by controlling cell growth and differentiation of tumor cells. She contributed to unravel the action mechanism of widely used inducers of tumor cell differentiation, such as the "hybrid polar compounds" (HPC). She also focused on the role of potassium channels, in particular, the hERG1 channel, in the governance of the resting potential, cellular ionic homeostasis and cell signaling in normal and cancer cells.
