Confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) enables three-dimensional (3D) imaging of tissues and cells marked with fluorescence dyes. Recent technological developments increase the photon efficiency of the CLSM, making it a popular choice for scientific imaging studies. Consequently, CLSM has come to play an essential role in assessing materials used in the field of endodontics as it allows realistic visualization of the endodontic tissues using high-resolution images.

Keywords: CLSM, confocal laser scanning microscope, imaging systems.
