Early In Vivo Visualization of Retinoblastoma Tumors in Histologic Detail
Date:8/28/2013

Indianapolis, In. (PRWEB) August 28, 2013

Researchers at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute at the Indiana University School of Medicine have been successful in visualizing retinoblastoma tumors in Tag-RB mice as early as 8 weeks of age using OCT technology. This is one week earlier than reported in the literature.1,2. By 10 weeks of age, retinoblastoma tumors in this transgenic mouse model were clearly delineated within the inner nuclear layer. The Phoenix Research Laboratories Image-Guided OCT facilitates in-vivo imaging of the tumors in histologic detail.

“The strength of in-vivo OCT imaging in mice lies not only in detailing the foci of the lesions within the retinal layers, but in the ability to monitor tumor growth longitudinally with documentation of the invasion or disruption of the inner and outer retina.” notes Tim Corson, PhD, Assistant Professor at the Glick Eye Institute, Indianapolis.

Retinoblastoma is the most common eye malignancy in children, usually affecting those younger than age 5. Early detection is the key to successful treatment of this blinding and potentially lethal cancer. Mouse models of retinoblastoma have provided insights into the development and treatment of tumors in the retina, as well the genetic pattern of inheritance of other cancers.

The Phoenix Image-Guided OCT delivers longitudinal resolution under 2 microns and enables precise OCT scan placement by providing a guide beam in the bright field image. Even small lesions not visible in the bright field image can be detected by OCT, easily scanned and their location referenced.

“We are excited and pleased by the contribution the Phoenix Image-Guided OCT System is making in groundbreaking research such as this retinoblastoma study,” said Bert Massie, PhD, Chairman and CEO of Phoenix Research Labs. “The power of in vivo OCT imaging is fueling earlier detection discoveries while contributing to the unde
