STEREOLOGY FROM ONE OF ALL THE POSSIBLE ANGLES

Leszek Wojnar

Abstract

Relation between image analysis and stereology is discussed in terms of different fields of applications, especially materials science, biology and medicine. Some long-term tendencies observed as well as possible future trends are discussed. The need of a wider use of image analysis techniques including ma1hematical morphology in any field of science is demons1rated. Simultaneously, the significance of stereological background in automatic quantification of1he investigated structures is confirmed.
