Introduction: Imaging Life

Within the last decade, our ability to see more clearly, more deeply, and with more understanding, has taken incredible strides thanks to emerging developments in imaging technology. Innovative instruments and their applications now allow researchers to look inside tissues, watch the intricacies of cell development, and view in multiple dimensions—only a few of the many examples of breakthroughs within this broadening field.

In this issue of the IEEE Life Sciences Newsletter, Cristian A. Linte and Ziv Yaniv discuss the promise of computer-assisted guidance and navigation for minimally invasive medical interventions, Subhamoy Mandal introduces the potential for imaging in five dimensions, and freelance writer Shannon Fischer collaborates with researcher Shabana Sayed to present fascinating new possibilities in the reproductive medicine using old technology — time-lapse imaging — in novel ways.
