These are sagittal and axial slices through a microMRI image of a 15.5 dpc embryo which is heterozygous for the gene Chd7. This gene is implicated in the human condition CHARGE syndrome. MRI is an effective method of screening embryos and in this case a heart defect was detected. This ventricular septal defect is clearly seen in the volume render (top-right) where the two ventricles (LV and RV) can be seen to communicate.
This image shows the 3D volume rendering of MRI images from an mouse embryo heart with a ventricular septum defect (VSD). RA = right atrium, LA = left atrium, RV = right ventricle, LV = left ventricle
Iron particles (red) are visualised in 3D inside an SPIO-labelled human mononuclear cell (green - cytoplasm, blue - nucleus) using reflectance confocal microscopy.
