Quantifying collagen fiber orientation in breast cancer using quantitative phase imaging

Posted on 04/09/17 by Chenfei Hu

PDF Link Tumor progression in breast cancer is significantly influenced by its interaction with the surrounding stromal tissue. Specifically, the composition, orientation, and alignment of collagen fibers in tumor-adjacent stroma affect tumor growth and metastasis. Most of the work done on measuring this prognostic marker has involved imaging of collagen fibers using second-harmonic generation microscopy […]
