4 Ex Vivo Applications Ex vivo confocal imaging using complex microscope systems has become a prominent and integral feature of modern-day scientific technology. Ex vivo conditions enable the process of image acquisition to be optimized and standardized, thus yielding optimal resolution and contrast. The information obtained in this way may be helpful when similar structures have to be identified and interpreted under in vivo conditions. The following examples illustrating blood constituents, pathogenic microorganisms, and ocular tissue structures demonstrate the resolution of the RCM under optimized experimental conditions.

The rapid imaging sequence in the device also permits dynamic processes to be recorded [51, 77, 88]. a Fig. 3 Normal and pathological tear film. a Normal tear film, noncontact examination. 2 Pathological Findings b up time; the surface of the superficial cells is visible in the area of the dry spot b Fig. 1 Superficial Cells (Up to Approximately 50 mm in Diameter) In the case of the most superficial epithelial cells, bright cell borders and a dark cell nucleus and cytoplasm are readily visualized on confo- cal laser scanning microscopy.
