The limited spatial and temporal resolution of available methods for quantifying renal tissue oxygen tension is a major impediment to identification of the roles of renal hypoxia in kidney diseases. Intravital phosphorescence lifetime imaging microscopy allows cellular oxygen tension in the renal cortex of live animals to be resolved to the level of individual tubular cross-sections. This paves the way for future investigations of the spatial relationships between cellular hypoxia and pathophysiological events in kidney disease.
