New 3D imaging techniques penetrate the heart of tissues for diagnosis

Researchers at the University of St Andrews in Scotland have discovered two new techniques for creating 3D images of internal, biological tissues. The non-invasive 3D scanning methods go deeper into tissue than ever before, and are capable of collecting a complete 3D image without rotating or taking multiple images of a specimen. The technology has many […]
