Developmental Dynamics of the Definitive mouse Placenta Assesed by Stereology
The strength of unbiased stereology
is that it reveals the truth about the basis for human disease.
We aim to pioneer the application of in planta time-lapse live-cell imaging using multi-photon confocal microscopy (MPCM) combined with ultrathin (2-D) TEM stereology
and high-resolution three dimensional (3-D) Serial Block-Face Scanning Electron Microscopy (SBFSEM).
New applications have appeared in combinatorics (see Stanley ), in stereology
(see Betke-McMullen ), in stochastic geometry (see Schneider ), and even in the study of random determinants (see Vitale ).
Histological analysis of the spleen, on the basis of the quantification of melanomacrophage centers (MMC) was done by stereology
Neurostereology: Unbiased Stereology
of Neural Systems
Immunohistochemical staining of NOS isoforms, PAI-1, [alpha]-SMA, IL-4, IL-13, and bFGF-positive cells in alveolar septa, as well as endothelial, myofibroblast, and smooth muscle cells in terminal bronchiolar arteries, were quantified by stereology
at 400 x magnification with an eyepiece systematic point-sampling grid with 100 points and 50 lines used to count the fraction of lines overlying the positively stained structures (27).
A long-standing problem in stereology
is variance estimation in systematic sampling.
It is proposed to use stereology
and 3D microscopy for the quantitative analysis of microstructures .

Once images are obtained using this method, stereology
techniques can be applied using image analysis software to estimate soil structural attributes.
