histomorphometry

his·to·mor·phom·e·try

(his'tō-mōr-fom'ĕ-trē),
The quantitative measurement and characterization of microscopical images using a computer; manual or automated digital image analysis typically involves measurements and comparisons of selected geometric areas, perimeters, length angle of orientation, form factors, center of gravity coordinates, as well as image enhancement.
[histo- + G. morphē, shape, + metron, measure]
