      12. Abstract :
        AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the veracity and sensitivity of in-vivo imaging system (IVIS) for inspection of tumor dynamic morphology. METHODS Mouse melanoma cells (B16-F10-luc-G5) in 100 mL media were seeded into a 96-well plate by 1:2 serial dilution from 10000 cells (well #1) to 78 cells (well #8). The plate was imaged using IVIS system to evaluate its sensitivity for luminescence. Ten Bablc mice with tumor cells were injected subcutaneously (1 x 10(5) in 100 mL) and tumor luminescence was detected by IVIS at Day 0, Day 3, Day 5, Day 7 and Day 9. RESULTS As few as 78 tumor cells were detectable by IVIS. A strong correlation between number of tumor cells and bioluminescence (R2=0.99) was also demonstrated. Tumor luminescence were observed in all mice by IVIS at all days, and there was significant difference (P<0.01) between each two days from Day 0 to Day 9. Moreover, tumor dynamic morphology could be monitored by IVIS when it is invisible. CONCLUSION Compared with conventional methods, with high veracity and sensitivity, IVIS system should be recommended as an effective method for inspection of tumor dynamic morphology.
