How can I track tumor metastasis using your system?

Our Vevo LAZR-X photoacoustic imaging system enables targeted molecular imaging using exogenous contrast agents. These contrast agents can be targeted dyes, made from commercially available kits, or custom nanoparticles. Refer to the following publications for examples of targeted molecular imaging of tumor metastasis using photoacoustics.
