We work towards a goal of non-invasive histology. Traditional histology uses a microscope to visualize the cellular microstructure of tissue from a thinly sliced sample mounted on a slide. Histology provides the gold-standard diagnosis for a wide range of diseases from cancers to dementias. However, the traditional approach requires an tissue sample from a biopsy or taken post mortem. The idea of non-invasive histology is to obtain the same information that a histologist gets from microscope images from non-invasive imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our aim is to replace tissue biopsy with measurements from live in-situ tissue using non-invasive imaging devices, such as MRI scanners.
