Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) together with Two-photon Excitation Fluorescence (TPE) imaging and computerized image analysis algorithms are used in this study to provide a novel, sensitive, and efficient method for collagen quantitation. Information on the collagen fibers in various animal models is extracted to assess fibrosis as it advances or regress in response to therapeutic compounds.Read More

HistoIndex was involved in contributing to the following posters:
1. Development and validation of an automated optical imaging system to differentiate severity of Hepatitis B- and Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis-related fibrosis in patients with concomitant disease.
2. Phenotypical characterization of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas stroma : the more fibrous, the less pejorative.
3. Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) microscopy : a novel automated method for quantification of hepatic steatosis in chronic liver disease.Read More
