A method is presented for the in vivo study of red cell flow dynamics. The method permits direct measurement of the red cell volume fraction in microvessel blood without resort to in vitro calibration curves. Furthermore, the method does not require extensive mathematical manipulation and can be applied to any microvascular network in any tissue. The method also enables direct measurement of red cell velocity, flux, and capillary transit time. Fluorescently labeled erythrocytes in tracer… CONTINUE READING
