In vivo and in vitro measurements of red cell velocity under epifluorescence microscopy.

Studies of blood flow in mesentery, cremaster muscle, and small bore glass tubes were performed to obtain a relationship between mean velocity (Vmean) and red cell velocity using the two-slit method under epifluorescence (Vepi) and transillumination (Vtrans) microscopy. The velocities Vepi and Vtrans obtained in vivo for 47 measurements in arterioles and… (More)
