Abstract: Thickness measurement in soft connective tissues is a continuing problem due to the apparent compression of the tissue by micrometer-type gauges. We have compared five methods for the measurement of thickness: (1) a Mitutoyo non-rotating thickness gauge; (2) a custom-built, instrumented thickness gauge which was strain-gauged to measure contact force; (3) a commercial Hall effect probe (Panametrics Magna-Mike); (4) a custom-built electrical resistance probe; and (5) measurement of fresh frozen histological sec…
