Dear Dr. Judit Zubovits

Maybe the procedure in this article can help you. I've never tried it myself

Jona VAlaitis et all.
Detection of early acute myocardial infarction by gomori trichrome aniline
blue stain.
The journal of histotechnology/ Vol. 17 No.2/june 1994

A time ago Dr. Geert Smits wrote an article on the effect of high energy
shock waves on mouse skeletal muscle as part of his thesis. It was in press
in ultrasound in medicine & biology 1992.

Effects of high energy shock waves in mouse skeletal muscle ..........
