Paper Abstract

Since evaporation of cellular water leads to shrinkage and motion, holography of human tissue specimens is generally possible only with pulsed lasers. Plastination is a preservation technique in which cellular water is removed and replaced with a curable polymer. This preserves the tissue, including even the cellular anatomy, and renders the specimen rigid enough for holography with continuous beam lasers.
