I've been imaging a lot of cardiac tissue lately and the striated fibers are so fascinating. These thin histo slices make the heart look so delicate. Each muscle cell by itself is weak and would break if gently pulled but, as the fibers form bundles they are extraordinarily strong and withstand the powerful contractions that pump our blood.
