Hepatycotes in the liver may appear similar in morphology, however, heterogeneities may exist in cellular metabolism. In this study, in vivo imaging of 6-carboxfluorescein diacetate (6-CFDA) metabolism in the liver was studied. We used two-photon fluorescence microscopy and hepatic window to provide quantification in studying hepatocellular metabolism. This model not only provides a potential platform for future study in hepatic responses and regulations, but also contributes to the fine-tuning of organ-specific functions so as to open up a new era of exciting discoveries.
