	Good Morning Histonetters,
	Years ago I used a Barium gel solution, which I was able to inject
	coronary arteries at physiologic pressures then cool the heart and
	solution would gel. This gel is visible under the fluoroscope. Do
any of
	you have a recipe for this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
	Thanks in advance
