Abstract

Ultrasound speed and impedance microscopy was developed in order to develop in vivo imaging system. The sound speed mode realized non-contact high resolution imaging of cultured cells. This mode can be applied for assessment of biomechanics of the cells and thinly sliced tissues. The impedance mode visualized fine structures of the surface of the rat's brain. This mode can be applied for intra-operative pathological examination because it does not require slicing or staining.
