Covid-19 lung tissue visualisation

Study of the changes caused by the coronavirus in the structure of alveoli (the tiny air sacs in the lung) and the vasculature. They use multi-scale phase contrast x-ray tomography extending conventional histology by a third dimension and allowing for full quantification of tissue remodeling.
