Figure 2

Combination of cone-beam and inverse geometry imaging modes (a) Volume rendering of the right hemisphere of a mouse brain, recorded in cone-beam geometry. The grey planes indicate the position of the slices shown in (b,c). (b,c) Coronal/Horizontal slice through the reconstructed volume. (d) Reconstructed coronal slice from the hippocampal region at cellular resolution, recorded in inverse geometry. The position of the high-resolution measurement in relation to the total sample volume is indicated in (b). Prior to the tomographic reconstruction the individual projections were resampled by a factor 2. (e) Maximum intensity projection of 31 successive slices, imitating a 30 μm thick histological section. (f) Reconstructed horizontal slice from the cortical region. (g) Maximum intensity projection of 31 slices. Prominent cortical features as the barrel field are clearly visible. Scalebars: (b,c) 500 μm, (d–g) 200 μm.
