Scope note: A type of TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY in which the object is examined directly by an extremely narrow electron beam scanning the specimen point-by-point and using the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen to create the image. It should not be confused with SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY.
Annotation: do not confuse with MICROSCOPY, ELECTRON, SCANNING nor with MICROSCOPY, ELECTRON, TRANSMISSION; since the techniques have different applications, do not interpret: if in doubt, use words of author
