Rapid advances in medical imaging are facilitating the clinical assessment of first-trimester human embryos at increasingly earlier stages. To obtain data on early human development, we used magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and episcopic fluorescence capture (EFIC) to acquire digital images of human embryos spanning the time of dynamic tissue remodeling and(More)
Hard X-ray phase-contrast imaging characterizes the electron density distribution in an object without the need for radiation absorption. The power of phase contrast to resolve subtle changes, such as those in soft tissue structures, lies in its ability to detect minute refractive bending of X-rays. Here we report a far-field, two-arm interferometer based(More)
W ith rapid advances in medical imaging, fetal diagnosis of human congenital heart disease is now technically feasible in the first trimester. Although the first human embryological studies were recorded by Hippocrates in 300 to 400 BC, present-day knowledge of normal human cardiac development in the first trimester is still limited. In 1886, 2 articles by(More)
