Abstract

This article demonstrates a combined instrument of two imaging modalities to acquire information on cardiac function in larval Drosophila melanogaster: optical coherence tomography (OCT) and laser scanning fluorescence microscopy (LSFM). For this purpose, a dedicated imaging instrument able to sequentially provide cross-sectional OCT and C-scan LSFM images has been developed. With this dual-imaging system, the heart can be easily located and visualized within the specimen and the change of the heart shape in a cardiac cycle can be monitored. © 2009 by WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
