Surface Renderings of Embryonic Vascular Structures

(A) Reconstructed FDR-deconvolution OPT data of the 19 somite embryo is shown as a surface rendered object.

(B) The surface rendered object can be zoomed in to any magnification, as in this magnified image of the vasculature in the mouse head.

(C) The surface rendering can also be rotated so that it can be viewed from any angle. Viewing the rendering from the left side reveals structures in the heart (arrow) that are obscured by the tail in (A).

(D) The 3D data can also be segmented as described in Materials and Methods. The DA, heart and ICAs are labelled yellow, the UV dark pink, and the unsegmented vasculature blue.

(E) Segmentation of the data allows selective display of labelled structures. Exclusion of the unsegmented data provides better analysis of the ICAs and the pharyngeal arch arteries.
