Whole-brain 3D visualization of anatomical distribution of Aβ plaques[1]



Systematic whole-brain visualization of Aβ plaque distribution is critical to characterize the key pathological features for understanding the pathology of AD. The brain-wide plaque distribution from the olfactory bulb to cerebellum was clearly visualized throughout the whole 5×FAD mouse brain.





Visualization of blood vessels surrounding Aβ plaques[1]




We visualized the plaques and vasculatures simultaneously in the hippocampus. The distribution of plaques and vasculatures across the entire unilateral hippocampus showed that the plaque-denser areas in the ventral part exhibited a reduction of blood vessels; while the plaque-sparser areas in the dorsal part showed relatively richer blood vessels.








Distribution patterns of inhaled particles at full lung scale[2]



Taking advantage of the fMOST system, co-localized lung-wide datasets of both cyto-architectures and fluorescent particles are collected at full scale with the resolution down to individual particles. The precise spatial distribution pattern reveals the region-specific distribution and structure-associated deposition of the inhalable particles in lungs, which is undetected by previous methods.
