Below are sets of transverse sections for every stage CS10 to 11PCW.

H&E sections, scanned at X20 or X40 are shown for the embryonic stages, while microCT images from 9┬Ám scans are shown for the fetal stages.

Sagittal and frontal sections will be added as they become available.

Annotation of the sections is a work in progress. A guide on how to view the sections is available here.
