Deep-brain imaging via epi-fluorescence Computational Cannula Microscopy
A recent paper written by the University of Utah utilises the gem 561 as an excitation source for widefield fluorescence microscopy and video imaging of the inside of a rodent’s brain, in a minimally invasive procedure. A surgical glass needle was used to guide the excitation light to the brain and transmit the fluorescence signals out. Algorithms were used to convert the spatially scrambled images into fluorescent images and video. Deep-brain imaging can be achieved and no scanning is involved allowing for native video frame rate.
