Project information


Confocal microscope has many functions but it is very suitable for assessment of skin biopsies which in two previous MD projects were used for research purposes. Combined with sensory testing, skin biopsies when stained to show tiny nerve ending in the uppermost layer of the skin, the epidermis, provide a powerful tool for assessment of nerve pathology that cannot be obtained in any other way.
