Imaging Services for Innervation Ecosystems in the TME

Relying on the technology platform of the tumor microenvironment center, Alfa Cytology provides a full range of imaging services for innervation ecotone in the tumor microenvironment (TME) to help researchers successfully achieve their research goals.


Nerves are also an important component of the tumor microenvironment (TME) and a major driver of tumor formation. The nerves that wrap around the blood vessels enter the tumor along with the new tumor vessels and provide oxygen and nutrients through the vessels, and the tumor cells also saecrete molecules that promote the formation of peripheral nerve axons that coil around the tumor. They initiate tumorigenesis by regulating stem cells, driving angiogenesis, modulating the immune system and influencing the microbiota. Peripheral nerves are important "accomplices" in tumor growth, and they release molecular signals that promote tumorigenesis and growth. Controlling nerve fibers and nerve signals will be a new strategy for tumor treatment.


Alfa Cytology investigates imaging methods to assess the spatial and temporal patterns of the innervation ecotone in the tumor microenvironment (TME). Advanced imaging techniques help to determine the size and shape of the tumor and identify nearby important normal tissues. These techniques include:

Alfa Cytology provides high quality anatomical imaging of innervation ecotone in the tumor microenvironment using a variety of techniques including X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound, and digital subtraction angiography (DSA).

Alfa Cytology provides high quality functional imaging services of innervation ecotone in the tumor microenvironment (TME) with the following technologies: single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission computed tomography (PET), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) analysis, perfusion imaging (PWI), etc. These are available for you to choose from.

Alfa Cytology offers imaging services in different modalities. The different imaging methods have their own advantages and disadvantages, and the modalities are complementary to each other. With multimodality imaging, multiple modalities or multiple imaging sessions of the same modality are performed on the same sample in order to understand the comprehensive information of the diseased tissue or organ and to make more accurate judgments or to develop more rational protocols.

Note: Our services list is constantly being updated and improved, please contact us by email for more up-to-date and relevant information.
