Abstract

Visiomanual morphometric analysis of peripheral nerve fibres has proved to be error-laden and inadequate. An automatic interactive programme was, therefore, developed for microscopic image analysis and feature extraction. Contours of myelin sheaths were properly identifiable, but an interactive programme component was found to be required to measure the remainder of two to 5% of fibres. Image analysis is shown to generate descriptive statistical features.
