Scientists of the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology and Saratov State University named after N. G. Chernyshevsky have developed a new, cost-effective method for visualizing blood flow in the vessels of the brain. The accuracy of the method is so high that it allows reconstructing the vascular map by the movement of individual red blood cells, and without the use of toxic dyes and expensive genetic engineering.
