Interpreting the Distortion Associated with a Retinal Wholemount

Chelvanayagam, D


Wholemounting is a standard procedure used to view the retinal organization in light microscopic studies. Radial cuts are made into the retina from its perimeter to allow it to be flattened onto a glass slide. This process distorts the retina and introduces missing pie (phantom) sectors into the wholemount. Distortion in the retinal wholemount has been quantified by modeling the retina as a hemisphere transformed into a disc interrupted with phantom sectors. The interrupted continuity of the...[Show more]
