GTEx Tissue Image Library

The GTEx Histological Image Viewer contains detailed tissue histology images collected from approximately 40 different tissue types from nearly 1000 postmortem donors as part of the Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) program. All tissues underwent stringent pathology review for tissue acceptability and each file contains details including the type of fixative, the degree of autolysis, as well as age range and gender. Additionally, the high resolution of each image allows for detailed viewing including pan, and zoom. For your convenience, files can be downloaded as Aperio image files for further analysis.
