High-resolution episcopic microscopy (HREM) is a recently developed technique, which permits the rapid
generation of digital volume data from biological material. Typical HREM data have a resolution of approximately 2x2x2
µm3 and are comprised of a stack of inherently aligned images, which resemble the quality of digital images of
histological sections. This study aims at recapitulating technical details of the HREM method, providing information on
recent modifications and briefly discussing the current and future fields of application.
