Figure 1

A schematic of the three-dimensional visualization and capillary structural analyses is shown. Confocal laser scanning microscopy was used to visualize the three-dimensional capillary architecture. Longitudinal microscopic images from the mid-belly and middle portion of the soleus muscle were obtained at a magnification of x20 and scanned for a depth of 50 μm at a 1-mm slice thickness.
