Cross Sectional Dual Axis Endomicroscopy

Add One

When biopsies are reviewed by pathologists in histology, they are typically viewed in ‘cross-section’ – a slice is cut perpendicular to the surface of the tissue. In contrast, microscopy performed directly on the patient (in vivo or endomicroscopy) usually generates en face images – slices in the plane of the tissue surface. Some endomicroscopes designs allow vertical cross-sections to be generated from stacks of en face images at varying depths, but this is nowhere near to being a real time approach. A group from the University of Michigan has now developed a handheld endomicroscope which can generate vertical cross-sections with a frame rate of 10 Hz.
