Oxygen Transport in Skeletal Muscle: Capillary Geometry in Longitudinal Section
For more than half a century researchers have recognised the need for quantitative measurements of the geometrical distribution of capillaries in the various organs of tissues of the body. Yet even today such information is very scarce in the literature, the reason, of course, being that spatial distribution of capillaries is a very complicated matter. Although it is easy to take pictures of the microcirculation it is not easy to reduce the information they contain to numerical form.
