In vivo fluorescence microscopy of microcirculation in the renal cortex of mice. Part II. Effects of mannitol and contrast media infusions.

In vivo fluorescence microscopy was used for experimental studies of renal cortical microcirculation in 46 mice. The cortical circulation was studied after i.v. infusions of mannitol of various osmolalities as well as nonionic low osmolar (iohexol) and ionic high osmolar (metrizoate) contrast media. All infusions produced an increase in the number of… CONTINUE READING
