Our skeleton, organs and every individual atom in our body are hidden beneath our skin. They only become visible using medical imaging, and this, also thanks to scientists at FAU, is becoming increasingly sophisticated.

There are any number of causes for pain in the knee. FAU researchers have now developed a method which can be used to scan patients whilst they are standing. They hope that the measuring technique will drastically reduce the number of unnecessary operations by providing results which reflect how the joint behaves under realistic conditions.

Using special microscopes, FAU researchers have succeeded in depicting tissue cells in 3D and directly in the living body, without administering dyes. The new imaging techniques raise hopes that in future a diagnosis will be able to be made directly whilst carrying out an endoscopy, for example during a colonoscopy, significantly reducing the number of biopsies required.
