This goes to show how this imaging device is able take a snap shot of small areas as far as imaging embryo mutants, and obtain a 3D vasculature down to 10 microm, over very large regions of mouse brain. The imaging system consists of a stereomicroscope, low noise camera for fluorescence and brightfield imaging, illumination sources and interchangeable optical filters to image fluorophores such as GFP, RFP etc. The camera is connected to the camera/video port of the microscope and interfaced to the control computer. All in all, the new Cryo- imaging technique allows scientist’s to differentiate the main tumor mass, the blood vessels that feed the cancer and dispersing cells. This enables them to peer at single cells and see exactly where they are in the brain, where they can target the cancer and stop them from spreading. The following essay demonstrates the value cryo-imaging provides in the field of small animal imaging research.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
