Probing the Breast in 3D, Dr Anne Rios, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research
This picture, taken inside human breast tissue, shows a 3D view of the elaborated milk-producing ductal network enwrapped within the blood vessels. This photo represents more than 100GB of data, obtained with a new, cutting-edge3D confocal strategy developed at WEHI. It allows a unique visualisation of expansive areas of breast tissue with high cellular resolution that could bring new insights in breast cancer.
