Incidental thalamic mineralization in a male B6C3F1 mouse from a chronic study. Note the irregular shape of the deposits at this high-magnification image.
A focus of mineral deposition in a site of former cerebellar neuronal necrosis (arrow) in a control male F344/N rat from a subchronic study.
Higher magnification of a focus of mineralization (calcospherites) at a site of former cerebellar internal granule cell necrosis (arrow) in a male F344/N rat from a subchronic study. Note the concentric lamellar nature of the concretions.
