[…] o millimeters and seconds was performed. For arterioles, every 5th time point was evaluated, for venules and capillaries every 10th. When the signal intensity decreased in the center of a vessel, the LS-PIV algorithm tended to calculate artificial velocities lower than in the vessel periphery. In some cases this could be avoided by careful visual inspection of x-t-diagrams and restriction of the e […]
