What You Need to Know About Breast Cancer Preclinical Research in Vivo Imaging

Vivo Imaging is a twenty first century technique that arises from the field of Pharmacology. There was a need for cell specialists to be able to keep track of cell processes without interfering with normal body processes. Biomarkers are introduced into the surrounding of the cells that are being targeted. The cells and the biomarkers interact chemically, and alter their images to match that of the target cell and images of the biomarkers. These are finally transmitted back to the cell specialists who are able to keep an account of the cell functions. This unique technology has since been used by researchers, to revolutionize the field of medicine.

Vivo Imaging has been used in the diagnosis of cancer and several cardiovascular diseases, and it is now being used in preclinical procedures where the biomarkers are introduced to cells around the breast to track their development and image any abnormal growths around this area. If an abnormal growth is caught early, the patient is immediately introduced to treatment. Early cancerous cells can be easily treated without any extreme measures having to be carried out.

Extensive research has been carried out in both animals and human models. Both models have proved the relevance of vivo imaging in breast cancer preclinical research. It has contributed to better cancer care to patients given that breast cancer has reported lower death tolls. Further research is being carried out to ensure this advanced method is applied to other areas of medicine. This dream has been limited by the lack of sophisticated equipment to perform large scale imaging on several patients. Vivo imaging is thus a very expensive technique that requires proper funding to produce large scale benefits to the medical field. The world also needs to be educated on the harmlessness of the biomarkers to the natural body functions.
