Oxygen Pressures Calculated in a Tissue Volume with Parallel Capillaries
Recently, we presented a model of oxygen diffusion in a flat plane with arbitrary capillary distribution (Hoofd et al., 1989). Capillary locations were read in from a tissue photomicrograph, and PO2 was calculated in the flat plane of the cross section, for a given set of input parameters, assuming only two-dimensional diffusion.
