Method Primary source abstract: "Blood flow and microvascular pressure distribution were determined in arterioles of the tenuissimus muscle by use of intravital microscopy and the radioisotope-labeled-microspheres technique."
Comments P.152 one paragraph above bottom: "The mean velocity of 2.43±0.08 mm/sec [BNID 115135], measured in the temporalis terminal arterioles and precapillaries (lumen of 3-6µm) is similar to the mean velocity of 3.8±1.0 mm/sec in cat tenuissimus precapillaries (9µm) reported by Fronek and Zweifach (primary source)."
