Dr. Hsu and her team have focused on development of polymeric nerve conduits to facilitate peripheral nerve regeneration. To better translate the research from animal experiments to human therapies, they have recently paid more attention on clinically available methods to visualize the peripheral nerve regeneration process.

This mini-review in Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 9, No. 10, 2014) proposes a few imaging tools that may help visualize the peripheral nerve regeneration process in vivo and in real-time. This article reviews the treatment options and imaging tools for peripheral nerve repair, which contributes to our knowledge in the related field.
