Click on the infarct in the image above:

When many cells undergo necrosis at once, then definable patterns of necrosis are produced, depending upon the nature of the injury, the type of tissue, and the length of time. This is an example of coagulative necrosis. This is the typical pattern with ischemia and infarction (loss of blood supply and resultant tissue anoxia). Here, there is a wedge-shaped pale area of coagulative necrosis (infarction) in the cortex of the kidney.
