Abstract

Stereology and morphometry were included in the histopathology courses of the University of Kuopio during the years 1981-1983. The basic principles were presented during general pathology. The diagnostic decisions based on morphology and morphometry were studied during systemic pathology. This created a new model approach for studying diagnostic decisions in general. Our experience suggests that education in stereology and morphometry can enhance the interpretation of findings in histopathology. In addition biostatistics could be integrated with histopathology, and ways could be opened towards probabilistic argumentation in diagnostic decision-making, towards testing human skills of interpretation and towards testing the quality of learning.
