Visualizing kidneys

Sometimes, the only way to identify objects of interest is in three dimensions. That`s the case at the Sapporo Medical University School of Medicine (Sapporo, Japan), where researchers are investigating genetic kidney disease. To do so, images of renal structures must be visualized in three-dimensions so that tubules within them can be studied.
