Development of a novel fluorescent microsphere technique to combine serial cerebral blood flow measurements with histology in the rat.

The aim of the study was to evaluate the microsphere technique for the quantitative assessment of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) at different time points in the same animal. Yellow-green and red fluorescent microspheres with a diameter of 15 microm were injected into the rat at two different time points via a cannula inserted into the left ventricle of… CONTINUE READING
