Yale is adding microscopy that provides an unprecedented view of specimens whose thickness had thwarted close inspection Biological structures exist and function in three dimensions, but the limitations of imaging technology have long meant that scientists could examine only two dimensions in fine d more

Novel PET tracer detects small blood clots
Blood clots in veins and arteries can lead to heart attack, stroke, and pulmonary embolism, which are major causes of mortality. Researchers show that targeting GPIIb/IIIa receptors, the key receptor involved in platelet clumping, with a fluorine-18 (18F) labeled ligand is a promising approach for d more
Molecular imaging hack makes cameras 'faster'
A new Rice University technique grabs images of chemical processes that happen faster than most laboratory cameras are able to capture them. The technique, super temporal resolution microscopy (STReM), allows researchers to view and gather useful information about fluorescing molecules at a frame ra more
