Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Nerve Morphometry is one tool employed in the clinical assessment of peripheral sural nerve pathological abnormalities. A new method is presented in this chapter incorporating an unbiased approach to quantitative sural nerve evaluation. Using conventional epoxy embedded nerves processed for electron microscopy, confocal microscopy, and interactive digital assessment, this method produces a rigorous, accurate reproducible record for use in clinical diagnosis.
