Introduction: Exercise training has anti-atherogenic impacts on conduit and resistance artery function and structure in humans and induces angiogenic changes in skeletal muscle. However, training-induced adaptation in cutaneous microvessels is poorly understood, partly due to technological limitations. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel high resolution imaging technique capable of visualising cutaneous microvasculature at a resolution of ~30μm. Read More
