  • 2015 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. This chapter will focus on various techniques for imaging stretched cells and review several studies that have imaged and quantified stretch-induced reorganization of specific cellular structures. In addition, the use of imaging to estimate stretch-induced force development will be presented. Finally, perspectives for future research and development in the area of imaging stretch mechanobiology will be discussed.
