In vivo observations of the mouse microcirculation can hardly be performed due to technical difficulties, limiting the knowledge that could be obtained from gene manipulated mice models. The aim of the present study was to check the applicability of a novel optical system, the orthogonal polarization spectral technology, to study the mouse microcirculation. In anaesthetized mice, the spinotrapezius muscle microcirculation was observed in situ. The diameter of precapillary arterioles was… CONTINUE READING
