Abstract
Over the years, various experimental methods have been applied in an effort to understand the blood flow behavior in microcirculation. Most of our current knowledge in microcirculation is based on macroscopic flow phenomena such as Fahraeus effect and Fahraeus-Linqvist effect. The development of optical experimental techniques has contributed to obtain possible explanations on the way the blood flows through microvessels. Although the past results have been encouraging, detailed studies on blood flow behavior at a microscopic level have been limited by several factors such as poor spatial resolution, difficulty to obtain accurate measurements at such small scale...
