    Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization imaging mass spectrometry (MALDI IMS) technology creates a link between the molecular assessment of numerous molecules and the morphological information about their special distribution. The application of MALDI IMS on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue microarrays (TMAs) is suitable for large-scale discovery analyses. Data acquired from FFPE TMA cancer samples in current research are very promising, and applications for routine diagnostics are under development. With the current rapid advances in both technology and applications, MALDI IMS technology is expected to enter into routine diagnostics soon. This chapter is intended to be comprehensive with respect to all aspects and considerations for the application of MALDI IMS on FFPE cancer TMAs with in-depth notes on technical aspects. © 2017 Elsevier Inc.
