Abstract

This paper presents the first application of high-resolution X-ray synchrotron tomography to the imaging of large micro- vascular networks in biological tissue samples. This technique offers the opportunity of analysing the full three-dimensional vascular network from the micrometre to the millimetre scale. This paper presents the specific sample preparation method and the X-ray imaging procedure. Either barium or iron was injected as contrast agent in the vascular network. The impact of the composition and concentration of the injected solution on the X-ray synchrotron tomography images has been studied. Two imaging modes, attenuation and phase contrast, are com- pared. Synchrotron high-resolution computed tomography offers new prospects in the three-dimensional imaging of in situ biological vascular networks.
