Image of the Week
Every 7 days we'll publish a new image taken by CABI researchers. Can you guess what it is?
WHAT: Tumour blood vessel network
SIZE: About the same as a marble
IMAGE: Computer-generated image of blood vessels in a tumour. Colours correspond to the thickness of the vessels: red = largest, blue = thinnest, green = intermediate.
HOW: The tumour is first imaged using X-Ray micro-CT. The blood vessels are traced using powerful imaging software to produce a 3D volume render of the complicated network.
USE: The blood vessel render was transformed into a resin cast using 3D printing which can be used as a model for future imaging studies.
WHO: Y. Zhu, S. Walker-Samuel
