The zebrafish has emerged as an excellent genetic model organism for studies of cardiovascular development. Optical transparency and external development during embryogenesis allow for visual analysis in the early development. However, to understand the cardiovascular structures and functions beyond the early stage requires a high-resolution, real-time, noninvasive imaging alternative due to the opacity of adult zebrafish. In this research, we report the development of a high frequency… CONTINUE READING
