High resolution 3D zebrafish imaging with optical projection tomography

    Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a workshop, seminar, course or other meeting


    In 3D optical projection tomography light does not behave in the ideal way that X-rays do in X-ray computed tomography. Effects of diffraction and refraction can severely affect the image quality in optical tomography when not properly taken into account. In this presentation I will show how these effects can be mitigated by using computational image reconstructions algorithms. Results on tomographic reconstructions of zebrafish demonstrate the opportunities this offers for high resolution, high contrast, imaging of small animals.
