Oxygen saturation in E14 mouse embryo and placenta

Embryo oxyhemo-3D-100%-O2.jpg

In vivo 3D rendered co-registered high-resolution ultrasound (greyscale) and photoacoustic (red, white and blue) image of an E14 embryo and its associated placenta (on left). The photoacoustic signal represents a parametric map of oxygen saturation with red values representing higher sO2. The image was acquired while the mother was breathing 100% oxygen.
