X-ray microscopy resolves three-dimensional cellular ultrastructures

Partially coherent object illumination allowed researchers to reconstruct the three-dimensional ultrastructures of cells such as the double nuclear membrane, nuclear pores, nuclear membrane channels, mitochondrial cristae and lysosomal inclusions. These results demonstrated visualization of structures at ~36-nm (Rayleigh) and ~70-nm (Fourier ring correlation) resolution.

Here is the paper that was reported in Nature Methods Journal: "Three-dimensional cellular ultrastructure resolved by X-ray microscopy"
