Here's a twist on the usual experiments to image genes and proteins in vivo. German and American optical imaging researchers have created a new near-infrared imaging system that uses ultrafast cameras to capture light that hasn't scattered, or so-called early arriving photons, effectively allowing them to view deeper tissues at higher resolution. So far, the work has focused on mice and is still in early stages.
