I have been using 3D laser scanning microscopy since 1993 to study vascular structure & function.  In recent years my imaging studies have focused on the autonomic innervation of perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT).  During all of these years I have been continually frustrated by the limited 3D visualisation options offered by most microscope-based 3D analysis packages (usually just 'tilt and turn').  A collaboration with the Glasgow School of Art, Digital Design Studio, alerted me to the possibility of importing 3D microscope-based data into sophisticated animation software (i.e. Autodesk Maya & 3Ds Max).  This has led to a new interest in animation & multimedia for teaching, learning & outreach.

If you have a 3D image volume that needs repaired, enhanced or brought to life, please get in touch.
