Confocal scanning microscopy at OHSU

Definition
A microscopy technique used in optimal imaging that increases optical resolution and contrast of a micrograph by using point illumination and a spatial pinhole to eliminate out-of-focus light in specimens that are thicker than the focal plane. It enables the reconstruction of three-dimensional structures from the obtained images.
