Solid tumor has become one of the most serious diseases that threaten mankind’s health and life all over the world. It is well recognized that structural and functional abnormalities of tumor vascularity and the subsequent microenvironment and cellular adaptive consequences creates a great barrier for drug delivery in solid tumors, contributing to treatment resistance. Hence, the investigation of microcirculatory dynamics in solid tumors has important significance for improving the effectiveness of many anticancer therapies.
