Re-evaluating the use of Voronoi Tessellations in the assessment of oxygen supply from capillaries in muscle.
The ability to characterise capillary supply plays a key role in developing effective therapeutic interventions for numerous pathological conditions, such as capillary loss in skeletal or cardiac muscle. However, quantifying capillary supply is fraught with difficulties. Averaged measures such as capillary density or mean inter-capillary distance cannot account for the local geometry of the underlying capillary distribution, and thus can only highlight a tissue wide, global hypoxia.
