A quantitative histochemical study of the microvasculature of irradiated skin.


Short-term X-ray damage to the microvasculature of the skin of newborn rats has been quantitated using Horseradish Peroxidase as a tracer. Image analysis of thick sections on which peroxidase was demonstrated histochemically revealed a radioinduced increase in vascular volume coupled with a decrease in vascular length and an altered frequency distribution… (More)
