Abstract

Confocal and two-photon fluorescence microscopy have advanced the exploration of complex, three-dimensional biological structures at submicron resolution. We have developed a voxel-based three-dimensional (3-D) imaging program (Voxx) capable of near real-time rendering that runs on inexpensive personal computers. This low-cost interactive 3-D imaging system provides a powerful tool for analyzing complex structures in cells and tissues and encourages a more thorough exploration of complex biological image data.
