Representative intensity plots for three stages of aneurysm wall tissue based on results from tensile testing, demonstrating collagen fibre orientation through the aortic wall. Depth of 0 denotes luminal side. Red colour indicates fibre angles at which there are fibres at that orientation; blue, absence of fibres. 0° fibre angle represents the circumferential direction, 90°, axial.
