The aim of this study was to measure the spatial thickness distribution of the cat tympanic membrane (TM), a very thin, virtually transparent and delicate biological membrane. Axial fluorescence images taken perpendicular through isolated TM were recorded for five different cats using confocal laser scanning microscopy. Thickness was measured on the cross-section of the membranes in the axial images. A correction for focal shift due to refractive-index mismatch was applied. Similar thickness… CONTINUE READING
