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.

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