Vessel systems and the microvascular unit may be studied by a variety of morphological techniques which enable improved structure-function analyses. Two-dimensional light and electron microscopic sectioning techniques with and without specific markers are complemented by 3D vascularisation and perfusion study techniques. Static ex vivo modalities still prevail, however, the future will be dominated by intravital high-resolution techniques.
