Figure 4: Histopathological findings of rat hearts in the chronic phase (8 weeks). Masson's trichrome stains of hearts were taken at ×100 and collagen deposition as an indicator of fibrosis is seen light blue. Myocardial tissue and vascular bed are considered normal (a). Acute collagen deposition is distinguished in the epicardial (b), endocardial (c) and myocardial (d) layers of ventricle. In addition, mild collagen deposition is detected in the endocardial (e) and myocardial (f). (a): Control, (b-d): Radiation, (e and f): Hesperidin + R
