Intravital microscopy is an essential tool that reveals behaviours of live cells under conditions close to natural physiological states. So far, although various approaches for imaging cells in vivo have been proposed, most require the use of labelling and also provide only qualitative imaging information. Holographic imaging approach based on measuring the refractive index distributions of cells, however, circumvent these problems and offer quantitative and label-free imaging capability. Here…

Intravital Laser-scanning Two-photon and Confocal Microscopy for Biomedical Research
TLDR
The most distinct advantage of intravital microscopy is its capability to provide a longitudinal view of disease progression at the cellular-level with repeated intravITAL imaging of a single animal over time by saving the images after each session.

Intravital microscopy: a novel tool to study cell biology in living animals
TLDR
The overall aim of this review is to give the reader a general idea of the potential applications of intravital microscopy with a particular emphasis on subcellular imaging, and some of the most exciting studies in this field will be presented using resolution as a main organizing criterion.
Marker-free phase nanoscopy
We introduce a microscopic method that determines quantitative optical properties beyond the optical diffraction limit and allows direct imaging of unstained living biological specimens. In
Label-free characterization of white blood cells by measuring 3D refractive index maps.
TLDR
Three-dimensional optical measurements and the label-free characterization of mouse WBCs using optical diffraction tomography are presented and demonstrate that optical diffractions tomography can be a useful and versatile tool for the study of white blood cells.
Digital holographic microscopy: a noninvasive contrast imaging technique allowing quantitative visualization of living cells with subwavelength axial accuracy.
TLDR
A digital holographic microscope, in a transmission mode, especially dedicated to the quantitative visualization of phase objects such as living cells, is developed, based on an original numerical algorithm presented in detail elsewhere.
Advances in small animal mesentery models for in vivo flow cytometry, dynamic microscopy, and drug screening.
TLDR
Using animal mesentery with intravital optical microscopy is a well-established experimental model for studying blood and lymph microcirculation in vivo and demonstrated that individual cell transportation in living organisms depends on cell type, the cellos functional state, and the functional status of the organism.
Optical imaging of cell mass and growth dynamics.
TLDR
Overall, this study shows that interferometeric quantitative phase microscopy represents a noninvasive optical assay for monitoring cell growth, characterizing cellular motility, and investigating the subcellular motions of living cells.

A new label-free multipurpose device for modelling and quantitative analysis of infection scenarios at the single cell level is provided and several bacterial cells can be aligned precisely on the surface of living host cells and localized reproducibly in three dimensions.
Red blood cell as an adaptive optofluidic microlens.
TLDR
It is shown that a suspended red blood cell behaves as an adaptive liquid-lens at microscale, thus demonstrating its imaging capability and tunable focal length and blood diagnosis is demonstrated by screening abnormal cells through focal-spot analysis applied to an RBC ensemble as a microlens array.
Quantitative dispersion microscopy
TLDR
The first dispersion phase imaging of living eukaryotic cells is presented, and the measured dispersion is found to be around 1.088, which agrees well with that measured directly for protein solutions using total internal reflection.

TLDR
High-resolution optical tomographic images of human red blood cells (RBCs) parasitized by malaria-inducing Plasmodium falciparum show cellular and subcellular structures of host RBCs and invaded parasites in fine detail.
