Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The temporal reparative responses in lung following the induction of lesions by pulsed ultrasound was studied. Rats were anesthetized and the skin of the left thorax clipped and depilated. The dimensions of each lesion at the visceral pleural surface were measured and bisected after fixation. Results showed the degradation of erythrocytes through processing and removal of hemoglobin and iron pigments.
