Brightest ever X-ray shows lung vessels altered by Covid-19

HiP-CT is a new technique that can hierarchically image intact whole human organs. Beginning with a scan of the whole organ at the resolution of a human hair (25μm/voxel), followed by zooming in to any area at a resolution of 1/10th a human hair (6μm/voxel), and finally zooming in again to a resolution where we can see single cells (1.5μm/voxel).

Professor Peter Lee, Dr Paul Tafforeau and Dr Claire Walsh, three of the lead investigators in the international team of scientists, talk about how the project came about, how the organ scanning is done right now and what possibilities there are for the future.
