Standard
ASTM F2603-06 (Reapproved 2012) Standard Guide for Interpreting Images of Polymeric Tissue Scaffolds
Scope/Abstract
1.1 This guide covers the factors that need to be considered in obtaining and interpreting images of tissue scaffolds including technique selection, instrument resolution and image quality, quantification and sample preparation.

1.2 The information in this guide is intended to be applicable to porous polymer-based tissue scaffolds, including naturally derived materials such as collagen. However, some materials (both synthetic and natural) may require unique or varied sample preparation methods that are not specifically covered in this guide.
