Scanning electron microscopy of vascular casts

Peter C. Burger, David B. Chandler, Gordon K. Klintworth

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Corrosion casts provide three dimensional replicas that can be examined readily by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). They are prepared by filling vascular networks with polymerizing plastic and then digesting away the tissue. As based on our studies of ocular vessels, this report describes the vascular anatomy, as well as the artifacts, that are encountered during SEM studies of such preparations.
