Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: CHOP researchers develop novel approach to capture hard-to-view portion of colon in 3D

(Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) In a groundbreaking discovery, researchers at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) developed a new imaging method that allows scientists to view the enteric nervous system (ENS) -- a key part of the human colon -- in three dimensions by making other colon cells that normally block it invisible. The ENS has previously only been visible in thin tissue slices that provide limited clinical information.
