Abstract

A system has been developed for intravital microscopy studies that records optical signals at different tissue sites together with X-Y coordinates within an area of up to 100 cm2. Z axis coordinates can also be recorded. The system utilizes a computer and a motor-driven microscope stage to rapidly and repetitively move between selected sites. The system can also be used to map topological features and geometry. The application of the system to study spatial heterogeneity of changes in tissue metabolism with time and to map vascular network architecture is described.
