Abstract

The components of the skeletal muscle tissue are more or less oriented in space - they show characteristics of spatial anisotropy. This property must be obligatory taken into account, when evaluating length density (LV) and surface density (SV), when the latter is not estimated on vertical sections. Nevertheless volume (VV) and numerical density (NV) are independent of the degree of anisotropy. Several methods and examples of their application for the stereological analysis of anisotropic structures are demonstrated, as are also the most frequently used variables, characteristic of the analysis of the skeletal muscle tissue.
