Vascular Cast.png

These are dissection microscope images of a bisected rat kidney vascular cast.  The white material is the vascular cast.  The tissue has been rendered optically transparent by a chemical clearing process thereby enabling direct visualization of the vascular cast.

Vascular Tree.png

This is a 3D rendering of a rat kidney vascular cast with vessels color coded by diameter.  To generate this image we created a renal vascular cast by infusion of casting material (microfil).  We then generated this 3D, vascular tree using microCT imaging.
