New Study Reveals Unrecognized Interstitium

Probe-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (pCLE) provides real-time cellular imaging of living human tissues. Advances in pCLE offer the potential to identify new, functionally-relevant microanatomical structures in humans. A new study demonstrates the power of in vivo endomicroscopy in generating fresh insights and necessitates reconsideration of many of the physiological activities of different organs and especially of fluid dynamics together with pathophysiology in the setting of fibrosis and metastasis. 

Read the full article, authored by IS4E members, Drs. Petros Benias, David Carr-Locke (IS4E President), Neil Theise and Rebecca Wells.

Join IS4E today to learn more about this and the latest pCLE technologies.
