Rat Eye BriteVu Arteriovenogram

Window to the soul.  An arteriovenogram reached the eye of a rat and, combined with micro CT, produced a detailed map of the blood supply to and within the eye.  The central (black) portion represents the iris which is immediately outlined by the blood supply to the iris.  The back half of the eye has been digitally removed to create a clearer picture.  CT scan at 10µm.  Courtesy of the Head Injury and Vessel Biomechanics Lab at the University of Utah.
