Valuable information on metabolism and function of distinct brain regions can be extracted from autoradiographs of 2D brain sections, e.g. after labelling with the non-metabolisable sugar derivate [14C]-2-fluoro-deoxyglucose (2-FDG). For a more complete comprehension of the data and for a comparison with information obtained by modern functional imaging techniques it is essential to have a reliable and efficient method for the 3D reconstruction of autoradiographs of serial sections.
