The article gives practical advice for those planning to perform a morphometric study. The following aspects are handled: the definitions of histological parameters, the morphometric model, the selection of stereologic and morphometric parameters, the methods for stereologic and morphometric measurements, the apparatus for point counting methods, microscopic magnifications, grids, sampling problems, tissue processing, the relevance of stereologic formulas, and the reproducibility of measurements. An exercise on point counting methods is included.
