The video shows a blood vessel (green color) in which breast tumor cells (red color) are attaching to the vessel wall. Small red particles show the flow through the vessel, while the large red-yellow circles are the tumor cells attached to the vessel wall. There are four tumor cells total: three on the top and one on the bottom of the vessel. Credit: University of Maryland Greenebaum Cancer Center
