Abstract

Label-free imaging of cardiomyocytes and collagen in myocardial infarction would be helpful for cardiac surgery. Here, we applied slit-scanning confocal Raman microscopy for molecular tissue imaging of rat myocardial infarct regions. Cardiomyocytes surrounded by collagen were clearly imaged at the cellular level without staining by using our Raman tissue imaging method.
