What I would do is scan the slide using a routine document scanner
fitted with a back light (used to scan 35mm slides). Include a ruler in
the scan. Print out the image and measure.

Subject: [Histonet] External diameter of large vein 

Dear All,
How can the external diameter of large vein like renal vein be measured
slide under light microscope?
     As the vein is large and measures several millimeters the
scale cannot be used. we also do not want to measure grossly using a
calipre. Our aim is to measure the vertical, oblique and transverse
diameter on the slide through microscope. Please also give the reference
the method.
