Systematic comparison and reconstruction of sea urchin (Echinoidea) internal anatomy: a novel approach using magnetic resonance imaging.

Systematic comparison and reconstruction of sea urchin (Echinoidea) internal anatomy: a novel approach using magnetic resonance imaging.

BACKGROUNDTraditional comparative morphological analyses and subsequent three-dimensional reconstructions undergo from a quantity of drawbacks. This is especially evident within the case of mushy tissue research which can be technically demanding, time-consuming, and typically inclined to supply artefacts. These issues can partly be overcome by using non-invasive, destruction-free imaging strategies, specifically micro-computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging.RESULTSHere, we …
