Available for licensing is software written in MatLab for evaluating striation patters in images of skeletal muscle fibers for better sensitivity in the quantitation of skeletal muscle disorders. Skeletal muscles have a regular, periodic organization (the periodicity of the sarcomeres), which is not only structural but also functional. Muscle pathologies create disorder in the normally periodic myofibrils. Objective grading of muscle morphology is necessary to assess muscle health, compare biopsies, and evaluate treatments and the evolution of disease.
