    Imaging algorithm visualizes early heart abnormalities
    Combining a post-acquisition rearrangement procedure with optical coherence tomography can provide high temporal resolution for capturing subtle dynamics in the early avian embryonic heart. ying abnormalities that occur during early cardiac development is very important for understanding congenital heart defects. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging modality based on low-coherence interferometry that is capable of micrometer-scale resolution and 1–2mm of depth penetration in embryonic tissue. OCT can visualize and quantify real-time heart dynamics in 3D, making it a useful tool for assessing cardiac development. Real-time volume imaging performed with current systems, however, does not provide the necessary ...
