Dr. Sumio Isogai is a skilled vascular anatomist on the faculty of Iwate Medical University in Japan. He collected the 3-D confocal microangiography data displayed on this website during several visits to the Weinstein Lab

He and Dr. Weinstein carefully analyzed many gigabytes of confocal images and derived detailed descriptions of the wiring patterns of developing vessels. Using his anatomic expertise, Dr. Isogai has been able to correlate zebrafish vessels with those found in other vertebrates, including mammals.
