"[Das Institut] erforscht die mikrostrukturelle und molekulare Zusammensetzung kleinster Blutgefäße, um deren Bildung in kranken und gesunden Geweben besser zu verstehen. Im Bild präsentiert eine Mitarbeiterin ein Gefäßausgusspräparat, welches im Mikro-Computertomographen untersucht wurde."

This is the caption to a photo, which I unfortunately don't have. It is all the information I have. The next photo caption is completely unrelated. Can anyone help with a translation?

TIA.

vascular corrosion cast preparation
Explanation:
Vascular corrosion casting is an established method of anatomical preparation that has recently been revived and has proven to be an excellent tool for detailed three-dimensional (3D) morphological examination of normal and pathological microcirculation. In addition, the geometry provided by vascular casts can be further used to calculate wall shear stress (WSS) in a vascular bed using computational techniques.
