Activating angiogenesis is one of the main indicators of cancer supporting rapid tumor growth and metastasis. Current treatment strategies aim at inhibiting tumor neo-angiogenesis, but tumor vessels are disorganized, leaky and dysfunctional. To understand how tumors instruct the formation and maintenance of blood vessels, we apply ultra-high field MRI, µCT and HREM to a xenograft mouse model and correlate the tumor vessels. The proposed open source visualization pipeline supports the analysis of angiogenesis by depicting the different vessels and anatomical context in a single model.
