A representative SEM images of a retracted whole blood clot (magnifications ×30 and ×3600) used for semiquantitative analysis of polyhedrocytes content and size measurement in 40 selected areas located in 3 vertical axes (from the left to the right and from the top to the bottom of the clot). a and b clot surface area containing fibrin cup and native red blood cells (RBCs) and eryptotic cells (marked with arrows), c and d transitional clot area composed mostly of transitional forms of polyhedrocytes and fibrin fibers, e and f clot internal area mainly composed of polyhedrocytes and small amounts of fibrin located on the edges of polyhedral RBCs
