In optical sectioning microscopy (OSM), 3-D information is collected by recording a series of 2-D images at various focal planes throughout the 3-D specimen.1 However, during the recording of 2-D images, it is critical that exact longitudinal spacing between adjacent 2-D images and the precise registration of these image slides are accurately controlled. Scanning confocal microscopy (SCM) is a radically new microscope design.
