Abstract

The application of stereological methods to morphometry of the articular cartilage is considered. The lateral tibial condyle of the knee joint of eight rabbits was examined. The thickness of the articular cartilage was measured, and, as stereological ratio estimators, the volume density and the numerical density of cells was estimated by point counting. The significance of random sampling for validity and precision of stereological estimators is discussed.
