Paper Abstract

Gradient index lenses enable multiphoton microscopy of deep tissues in the intact animal. In order to assess their applicability to clinical research, we present in vivo multiphoton microscopy with gradient index lenses in brain regions associated with Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease in both transgenic and wild-type mice. We also demonstrate microscopy of ovary in wild type mouse using only intrinsic fluorescence and second harmonic generation, signal sources which may prove useful for both the study and diagnosis of cancer.
