Dean and Fiolka have developed a SPIM imaging technique, referred to as Axially Swept Light-Sheet Microscopy (ASLM), that enables high-resolution isotropic imaging of cellular processes within large and experimentally tractable 3D microenvironments.  ASLM uses aberration-free remote focusing to scan a laser line focus (i.e., a narrow sheet of light) in its propagation direction synchronously with a rolling active-pixel array on a scientific CMOS camera.
