Abstract

Traditional imaging techniques are quite limited for the study of the relationship between blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. Therefore, a new imaging technique is required based on blood vessel and lymphatic endothelial-specific molecular markers. In this short report, vascular molecular markers are reviewed and a new molecular imaging technique for blood vessel and lymphatic co-staining is introduced.
