ABSTRACT
Inspection of deep tissues in vivo is now possible with the aid of a new instrument described here—the fiber optics hypodermic microscope. The details of construction and principles of operation of this device have been presented along with photographs of blood vessels taken through the instrument. Possible uses of the hypodermic microscope include structural observations of deep vessels under the influence of trauma, drugs, local heat, exercise, and related stimuli. The instrument is presented with hopes that it will assist in the further broadening of the already expanding horizons of angiology.
