This article discusses how autoimmune diseases, like systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), can be studied more efficiently using thick, 3D kidney tissue specimens visualized with a THUNDER Imager . SLE can lead to lupus nephritis (LN) when blood vessels in the kidney become inflamed. If left untreated, eventually kidney failure could be the result. A better understanding of the initiation of LN is important for the developing treatments. This goal necessitates the study of 3D kidney specimens. Read article
