Figure 3 A photomicrograph in a section of a thoracic aorta in the control group showing tunica intima (arrow) faces the lumen. Elastic fibers and smooth muscle make up the tunica media (thick arrow). The outermost layer is the tunica adventitia which made of loose connective tissue (arrow head). Note the thickness of both tunicae intima & media. (H&E X200)
