Abstract
This paper describes a new simple technique for the fast readout of autoradiographic images from tissue slices. The tissue slice is taken from an animal which has been given a radioactively labeled drug. The autoradiographic image enables one to determine where the drug accumulates in the animal, by detecting the electrons given off by the radioactive material as it decays. The technique uses a microchannel plate electron image amplifier to detect electrons emitted from a radioactively labeled tissue sample. The microchannel plate will be described first, then an experiment performed to detect tritium in a labeled tissue sample.
