2P Imaging of Tumor Vasculature

Multiphoton imaging is a tad easier in CAMs versus in mice, no adipocytes, no hair, no skin to cut through etc.  I’ve injected lectin-FITC into the CAM and here we are imaging immediately above a tumor.  The CAM capillary bed is the first layer, but deeper down, we can see some vessels – belonging to the tumor deep in the stroma.  Thanks Steven Kerfoot!
