Abstract
Quantitative morphological analysis of the structure of biological materials or systems is generally carried out from observations made upon thin histological sections. The stereological problem involved in this type of analysis is the statistical relationship between measurements made on transmitted images and the morphology of the structure. The section is thus a statistical sample of the structure from which transmitted images are formed using optical or electron micros-copy, radiography, autoradiography, or other techniques. These images contain projections of the structural features cut by or contained within the thin sample, and thus are significantly different from reflected light images which can usually be assumed to approximate true two-dimensional samples of the structure. The stereological problems associated with the quantitative analysis of morphology from transmitted images will be considered in this paper.
