Angiogenesis in advanced breast cancers is highly distorted and heterogeneous. Non-invasive imaging that can monitor angiogenesis may be invaluable for assessing tumor response to treatment. By combining ultrasound and near infrared optical imaging, a reliable new technique has emerged for predicting tumor angiogenesis within the breast.
