Image of the Month
This sagittal section of a fetal degu at 60 days of gestation is stained with hematoxylin and eosin and Alcian blue. The developmental state of the brain, eyeball and inner ear can be seen in the lower right, along with cartilaginous plates in the spine that form the ribs and limbs. In the fetus’ abdomen, the liver and lungs clearly show an advanced stage of development. The veterinary pathology image was captured on a NanoZoomer-XR digital slide scanner at 40X.
