Light micrograph

A light microscope uses focused light and lenses to magnify a specimen. There are numerous types of microscopes that can magnify a specimen up to 1000x its actual size. The results are amazing and beautiful, revealing the fine details invisible to the human eye.

SEM and TEM

A scanning electron microscope (SEM) uses an electron beam to scan the surface of a specimen. Electrons are emitted and reflected from the surface and gathered by a detector to build a spectacular black and white image. It reveals details of less than 1 nanometer in size and magnifies from 5 to 500,000 times. Colour is added digitally. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) uses an ultrathin specimen imaged at considerably higher magnification to reveal the internal structure of a sample.

MRI

MRI is one of the most important diagnostic tools used in radiology. It produces images of the anatomy and physiological processes in healthy and diseased bodies. MRI uses a powerful magnet and pulses of radio waves to create fascinating images of the body.

Radiography

Radiography uses an X-ray beam to view the internal structure of the human body or objects. CT scanners use a moving beam of X-rays to produce numerous slices of the body, which are combined by a computer to form a 2D or 3D model.
