Innovations and Applications from MRT

Published: 03 Aug 2012

Edited By: Prof. George C. Ruben, Editor-in-Chief

Microscopy Research & Technique (MRT) publishes articles across the spectrum of microscopy techniques and also features research applying these diverse methods to biology, materials science, chemistry, and medicine, among other fields. This Virtual Issue highlights some of MRT’s latest cutting-edge research, including an innovative application in conservation science, a new illumination technique for improved visualizations of complex structured transparent specimens, and a novel system to efficiently segment brain MR images.

Readers of MRT will always find something new, relevant, and provocative, both within and outside their specialties.
