Shrinkage in EM?

For a paper on C. elegans electrophysiology, I sorely need to know the
diameter of the processes of particular neurons.  Unfortunately,
tissues shrink substantially when prepared for EM, and the White et
al. 1986 paper does not report the amount of shrinkage.

Does ANYBODY know, or know somebody that knows?  Process diameter has
a huge effect on expected passive electrical properties.

Thanks in advance!
