Fossilized Teeth as a New Robust and Reproducible Standard for Polarization-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography

Figure 4

Histology of tendon and meniscus samples. (a) Picrosirius stained normal bovine tendon exhibits a very organized, bright yellow banding pattern indicative of high collagen content and good organization. (b) Trichrome of bovine tendon confirms structural robustness of tendon, again showing uniform bands. (c) Picrosirius staining of mechanically and chemically destroyed bovine tendon shows very little yellow banding and minimal organization, indicative of heavy collagen disruption and loss. (d) Trichrome of destroyed bovine tendon confirms picrosirius, showing structural rupturing. (e) Picrosirius staining of bovine meniscus shows moderate lack of bright yellow banding, indicating disorganization and moderate collagen content. (f) Trichrome shows no structural abnormalities.
