Visualizing Tumors in 3D: An Ultramicroscopic Approach

Credit: TU Wien.

Researchers at TU Wien and TU Munich have developed a new technique for examining tumors for cancer cells left behind after surgery (1). Using a special ultramicroscope, they visualized an entire tumor in 3D (as shown above) and digitally analyzed each layer of the sample – removing the need to cut into the tumor itself. The team believe their method could revolutionize the lab by enabling pathologists to examine the whole tumor for remaining cancer cells, improving diagnostic reliability.
