Using diffusion tensor imaging, an MRI-based imaging technique, Nian Wang from the Centre for In Vivo Microscopy at Duke University in the US has created a picture that won the second annual BMC ‘Research in progress’ international photo competition.

Wang’s shot shows a mouse kidney. The bright colours correspond to different tubules which collect filtrate from blood passing through the organ.
