Visualization tools are reshaping clinical practice and driving biomedical discovery. New strategies for visualizing the difference between bone and blood vessels have sparked insights into how muscle tumors spread and thrive. "Now that we have these new contrast agents and powerful software tools in hand," Keller says, "we're getting an appreciation for how aggressive these tumors are in luring new blood vessels to their leading edge while simultaneously leaving a trail of dying tissue in their wake."
