Abstract
This paper presents a new application for the analysis of histological sections and their 3D visualization. The process is performed in few steps. First, a manual process is necessary to determine the regions of interest, including image digitalization, drawing of borders and alignment between all images. Then, a reconstruction process is made. After sampling the contour, the structure of interest is displayed. The application is experimentally validated and some results on histological sections of a rodent's brain (hamster and rat) are shown.
