Alligator Distal Colon and Kidney Contrast Perfusion with BriteVu

An alligator was perfused via the ventral coelomic (abdominal) vein with BriteVu.  Internal organs were removed and CT scanned at 35µm for better visualization.  The distal colon and kidney are scanned as one unit.  The colon is on the top and terminates to the left and seemingly joins the kidney on the bottom left.  Courtesy of Dr Colleen Farmer, Farmer Lab, University of Utah.
