  • findin x-sectional area of extensor tendon

    hi, i'm a student in Nanyang Technological University and am doing a project
    which requires me to measure the dimensions of the extensor tendons of the
    hand (in-vitro). the problem is that the tendon does not have uniform
    dimensions which makes it difficult to measure values like the x-sectional
    area.(required for tensile testing).

    a possible alternative would be to determine the volume by liquid
    displacement and divide it by the length, which should give the average
    area. are there any other better methods?
