Cinephotography of the bulbar conjunctival vessels was carried out by means of a 16-mm reflex cine camera utilizing synchronized strobe light, mounted on the focusing stand of an ophthalmic head rest. Details of the microcirculation including capillary flow could be ascertained from the projected films. A variety of disease states all revealed slower than normal flow, erythrocyte aggregation far greater than that of the normal subject, and marked abberation of vascular morphology.

    Background: So far, none of the existing methods on Murray's law deal with the non-Newtonian behavior of blood flow although the non-Newtonian approach for blood flow modelling looks more accurate. Modeling: In the present paper, Murray's law which is applicable to an arterial bifurcation, is...

    Use of laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) to assess cochlear blood flow (CBF) in experimental animals has elucidated the complex mechanisms in CBF regulation. Some attempts have been made to measure CBF in humans, although earlier studies produced confusing data about the physical possibility of LDF...
