Caption: The video shows the imaging of a section of a mouse lung. As the image rotates, more respiratory branches (bronchioles) are shown, along with three acini (yellow, green and orange clusters). The blood vessels feeding the acini are then added with the arteries shown in blue and the veins in red.
