Abstract

It is now well established that unrestricted growth of tumors is dependent upon angiogenesis. However, previous studies on tumor growth have not yet revealed how the transition to an angiogenetic state in ovarian malignancy is reflected in the vascular architecture of the ovary. We report here our preliminary observations based upon three-dimensional imaging of normal and tumor-induced ovarian angiogenesis created with a computer-assisted three-dimensional interactive application. The findings suggest that tumor-induced angiogenesis creates a bizarre vascular architecture, with a possible link to chaotic behavior.
