Microscopic biopsies of dark and light mini-pig skin surface 48 h after threshold irradiation (H&E stain. Original magnification ×200). a2,a3: dark colored skin; b2,b3: light colored skin; a2,b2: histological section of normal skin; a3,b3: histological section of threshold lesions, vascular dilation and thrombosis in dermal blood vessels (arrow 1), perivascular inflammation (arrow 2), regenerated epidermal cells growing under necrotic epidermis (arrow 3), and transmural necrosis of epidermis (arrow 4). See article by Bo Chen et al. on page 273 for more information.
