    Intravital Imaging System Provides Real-Time Insight into Liver Disease Progression

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    The high-resolution, 3D-viewing capabilities provided by a new microscopy method from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) could lead to insights into nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a condition in which too much fat is stored in the liver. The researchers used their technique to observe how tiny droplets of fat, or lipids, accumulated in the liver cells of living mice over time.

    “It has been challenging to find a treatment strategy for NAFLD because most studies examine excised liver tissue that represents just one time-point in disease progression,” professor Pilhan Kim said. “Our technique can capture details of lipid accumulation over time, providing a highly useful research tool…
