Many researchers would love to image deeper into fluorescently labeled, sectioned tissue without the need to use two-photon microscopy.  Deep imaging suffers from the effects of a number of optically-related artifacts.  Several recent techniques have been proposed to alter the optical properties of the sample (CLARITY, SCALE, etc) and greatly improve the ability to image deeper.  Shane Andrews (Olympus America) will review these techniques, sharing their pluses and minuses, as well as tips (including new Olympus specialty objective lenses) for success.

The primary goal of this workshop is to show that scientific digital images are really data, to illustrate what can be done with those data, and the ease with which they can be compromised.  Presentations will include what constitutes a digital image, what goes into acquiring good images, as well as jargon and concepts associated with digital images.  These include such topics as pixels, resolution, over-saturation, color space, image format, bit depth, and image processing filters.
