Paper Abstract

Most low-light-level 3D bio-imaging systems use sensors with high spatial resolution but relatively low temporal resolution. The authors aim to measure events in skeletal muscle cells that include (1) changes in cross-sectional area during contraction and (2) regions of contracting cells illuminated by Ca2+-activated photoproteins compared with those that are dark or partly lit. This paper outlines some limits of the system's ability to detect these events.
