Human Hip Vessels as seen with BriteVu

Jul 12, 2017 0 Comments in Humans

Human hip blood vessels perfused with BriteVu.  This section was taken from a whole body perfusion performed by Dr Bruce Wainman (Ed Program Anatomy, McMaster U).  The femoral artery and its branches have been digitally isolated.  From the left to right the images show a lateral to anterior depiction of the hip.  The coccyx (tailbone) is shown at the far left of each image.  The femoral artery (and its branches) can be best seen at the lower right of each image.  BriteVu Special Projects was used to create contrast and the body was imaged on a clinical CT scanner at 1 mm resolution.
