Collecting Data

 

Three-dimensional structures are sectioned to see what is inside.  Data are collected from images of these "two-dimensional" sections (by applying test grids) and used to evaluate equations (stereology) that give 3D estimates for structures.  Since the beginner may find the methods somewhat daunting, several worked examples and practice exercises are included in the software.     

Product features:

  • Methods and tools for estimating the volume of a loaf of bread.
  • Methods and tools for estimating the volume of a human lung.
  • An introduction to counting structures in sections.
  • Examples of estimating the length of vessels.
  • Examples of estimating the surface of membranes.
