Spinal Chord / Neurology

spinal cord



Spinal Injury data consists of stained histological cross sections of spinal cords captured
through a high-resolution scanning microscope.

Of interest to researchers is the cavitation in the injured portion of the cord.
Reconstruction techniques are used to model the spinal cord, the lesion, and the cavitations in
the lesion. Quantitative measurements for surface area and volume of the lesion and the
cavitations are performed.

Joint work with Professor Richard Borgens of the Department of

Veterinary Medicine and director of the Center for Paralysis Research at Purdue.
