For each combination of injection site and cannulation site, two plots are shown. On the left: brain bubble counts normalized to total injected bubble volume, expressed in bubbles/μL. Bubble counts were separated for small bubbles (S), medium bubbles (M) and large bubbles (L). Each symbol represents a single bubble injection (5 repetitions in total for each pair). Outliers are shown with black circles (Heart Bubbles; femoral cannulation; for S bubbles: 3.26 bubbles/μL, for M bubbles: 3.38 bubbles/μL). On the right: brain bubble counts (not normalized) during recorded peaks for each repetition (corresponding symbol is put on top). All peaks are shown over a time interval of 80 s
