Detecting structural and inflammatory response after in vivo stretch injury in the rat median nerve via second harmonic generation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) microscopy is a promising method for visualizing the collagenous structure of peripheral nerves. Assessing collagen continuity and damage after a stretch injury provides inferential insight into the level of axonal damage present. NEW METHODS This study utilizes SHG microscopy after a calibrated in vivo stretch… (More)
