PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

In addition to the above comment, the  'Nailfold capillaroscopy image assessment tool' was published in Michael Tong's 2008 thesis titled "Evaluation of Video Capillaroscopy as a Method of Assessing the Microcirculation of the Nail Fold in Raynaud's Phenomenon and Related Small Vessel Diseases". This was completed as part of a Bachelor of Medical Science at the University of Newcastle.
