Using advanced X-ray technology, researchers have for the first time imaged an entire mouse brain, from the synapse to the whole brain level

By using an imaging pipeline of MRI, μCT, and EM, Foxley, Kasthuri, and their team were able to simultaneously resolve brain structures, like the white matter, at (a) macro-, (b) meso-, and (c) microscopic-scales in the same brain. Image from Foxley et al.

In the STOIC study, readers classified CT exams as COVID positive, COVID negative or normal. The readers had access to the CT scans using a 3D image visualization web application, allowing scrolling through the entire lung volume in the coronal, sagittal or axial transverse plane. The CT scan shown here has been classified as COVID positive due to the presence of bilateral ground glass opacities and absence of features such as mucoid impaction, bronchiolar nodules, segmental, lobar consolidation.
