A preliminary study on the application of the scanning electron microscope to human tissues is presented. The method has the advantage of viewing tissues in three dimensions. It seems likely that with refined techniques this instrument may be of use in correlating pathophysiologic changes as in gaseous diffusion in the lungs and absorption in gastrointestinal tract disease.
