Tissue imaging using MALDI-based mass spectrometry is a powerful way to look at the molecular distribution of proteins on the surface of a tissue by detecting signals generated by peptides or proteins. It is also possible to detect the distribution of other molecules such as lipids or metabolites. The "Molecular Images" generated permit the characterization of the tissue by analyzing protein distribution. Therefore, if the signal is strong enough, molecular signatures for pathological progression, or drastic changes in tissue architecture may be defined.
