Nanometer-Scale 3D Images Show Velvet Worm Up Close

Euperipatoides rowelli is ready for its closeup. Biomedical physicists have used a new computed tomography (CT) machine to produce 400-nanometer-scale 3D images of a tiny limb of a newborn velvet worm to test the system’s ability to produce hyper-detailed scans of biological samples. Such images could help scientists probe evolutionary linkages among fundamental and ancient animal species. Its inventors also hope it can illuminate fleshy features for medical applications such as tumor analysis. The tabletop tomography setup was assembled by researchers at the Technical University of Munich , who discuss its pros and cons in a recent paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences . The system’s key advantage is that it employs a new type of X-ray tube produced in Sweden by manufacturer Excillum . It features a very thin water-cooled tungsten target sitting on ...
