A method has been developed for routine laboratory
visualisation of small-scale soft tissuebymeansof transmission
X-ray radioscopy and tomography. Using termites as models,
imaging quality with a spatial resolution of about 3 μm
was achieved and 3D tomographic reconstruction was
demonstrated. A termite worker individual was visualized
before and after its metamorphosis towards the soldier caste.
The developed methodology represents a non-invasive and
real-time way of acquiring 3D anatomic data with a high
contrast so that it is a promising candidate to become a tool for
routine investigations in life sciences.
