The primary purpose of present study was to investigate the application value
of Synchrotron Radiation Phase Contrast Imaging (SR-PCI) for the evaluation of
lung tumor growth. Comparison between Absorption Contrast Imaging (ACI) and inline
PCI was observed in living tumor-bearing mice. Early lung cancer was shown at
pre-injection, 12 h and 36 h post-injection in the same mouse. PCI was performed to
noninvasively monitor tumor progression in a longitudinal study. It was concluded that
PCI was a helpful imaging modality for detecting early lung tumor and monitoring
tumor growth in mouse models.
