Andy sent me this link to a cool BBC news report on using scanning equipment to watch an infection in real time.

The video shows bacteria infecting the small intestine, retreating to a small pocket in the digestive tract and the booming in numbers as they spread to the rectum then all over the large intestine.

The later scans show the immune system driving the bacteria back and the mouse clearing the infection.
