X-ray microtomographic imaging of intact vertebrate embryos.


X-ray microtomography (microCT) is a highly versatile imaging method, and with appropriate contrast stains and sample mounting, it can produce high-quality images of embryos at a wide range of developmental stages. The techniques presented here provide simple and robust methods for gel embedding and microCT scanning of vertebrate embryos. The specimens are… (More)
