Applications of stereology in pathology: a brief guide

Open Access

Attached document(s)



The value of using stereological techniques to investigate pathological tissues is enormous, but its full potential has yet to be realised. In the present report, a brief guide to some practical considerations is provided, and the problems of sampling pathological material are discussed. By applying the methods, much valuable information can be obtained from the analysis of histological material which exists in abundance in all pathology departments.
