X-ray scattering analysis of normal human arteries

Ogan Gurel, 25 July 1995

Any diffraction pattern ("rings" or "spots") implies the existence of regularly repeating interatomic distances
Spots
Molecular order Nonrandom Orientation

Rings
Molecular order Random Orientation

CONCLUSION: Normal human arteries (superficial temporal arte ry) posse ss a high degree of a to mic/mo lecular order (probably attributable to collagen) aligned along the major axis of the artery. First, this result alone is important and second, these diffraction patterns provide very sensitive markers for evaluating structural differences between specimens from various sources.
