David Warburton discusses lung structures as they reveal themselves through the use of VibraSSIM imaging technology. VibraSSIM digitally records layers of information as you go down through the tissue. Here, the lung is specially fixed to maintain hydration so its depiction is more similar to the lung’s appearance in the living body.
