Estimation of Blood Flow Heterogeneity in Human Skeletal Muscle Using Intravascular Tracer Data: Importance for Modeling Transcapillary Exchange


Distributed models of blood-tissue exchange are widely used to measure kinetic events of various solutes from multiple tracer dilution experiments. Their use requires, however, a careful description of blood flow heterogeneity along the capillary bed. Since they have mostly been applied in animal studies, direct measurement of the heterogeneity distribution… (More)
