Microspheres with diameters of from 10 to 30 mum were injected into the renal arteries of three anesthetized dogs. The six kidneys were studied by light microscopy. The diameters of the spheres trapped in the afferent arterioles and of all spheres recovered in the kidneys were recorded. On the basis of the distribution of diameters in these two populations of spheres, the average diameter of the afferent arteriole and the distribution of the afferent arteriolar diameters were estimated.
