Abstract

A morphometric analysis has been carried out on human muscle biopsies. In addition to an areal and number ratio of the type I and type II muscle fibres, some spatial distribution parameters have been investigated by measurement of type I and type II fibre alternations. An index of spatial distribution and an estimate of the mean size of fibre aggregates were calculated and plotted.
