Abstract

Cardiovascular disease typically is associated with dysfunction of the coronary vasculature and microvasculature. The study of cardiovascular disease typically involves imaging of the large coronary vessels and quantification of cardiac blood perfusion. These methods, however, are not well suited for imaging of the cardiac microvasculature. We used the optical histology method, which combines chemical optical clearing and optical imaging, to create high-resolution, wide-field maps of the cardiac microvasculature in ventral slices of mouse heart. We have demonstrated the ability of the optical histology method to enable wide-field visualization of the cardiac microvasculature in high-resolution and anticipate that optical histology may have significant impact in studying cardiovascular disease.

Fig. 1

Epi-illumination images of mouse heart sections (left) before and (right) after optical clearing with FocusClear. These images clearly depict the increased section transparency that results from optical clearing.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

MIP map of the cardiac microvasculature in a (a) native and (b) optically-cleared ventral heart slice. The colormap corresponds to the depth of maximum signal at each pixel, and is the same for both images. The imaging depth does not increase substantially due to the relative thinness of the tissue, however, the vascular density is much more pronounced. Region outlined in green is shown in Fig. 3.

Region outlined in green in Fig. 2(B) showing zoomed in view of coronary vessel and microvasculature acquired at 10x magnification. Scale bar is 100 µm.

Optical histology enables imaging of multiple markers of interest. Images were acquired at (a) 20x and (b) 40x magnification of mouse cardiac microvasculature labeled with DiI and nuclei counter stained with DAPI. Scale bar for (a) is 50 µm and (b) 25 μm.
