The nucleator is a well-established manual stereological method of estimating mean cell volume from observations on random cell transects through reference points of the cells. In this paper, we present an automated version of the nucleator that uses automatic segmentation of the boundaries of the cell transects. An expert supervises the process. If the(More)
In the present study the Hamilton Anxiety Scale (HAS), originally constructed for patients with neurotic anxiety, has been applied to patients with diagnosis of depressive disorders. The inter-rater reliability and homogeneity are evaluated and total scale score has been correlated to the Bech-Rafaelsen Melancholia Scale (BRMES). Twenty-two patients entered(More)
37 alcoholic males under the age of 35 were examined clinically, by psychometric tests, by computerised tomography (CT scans), and by liver biopsy. Factors other than alcoholism that might have caused brain damage were excluded. The prevalence of brain damage in this group was far greater than that of severe liver damage: 59% were intellectually impaired(More)
In the present paper, we propose a Palm likelihood approach as a general estimating principle for stationary point processes in R d for which the density of the second-order factorial moment measure is available in closed form or in an integral representation. Examples of such point processes include the Neyman–Scott processes and the log Gaussian Cox(More)
The growth of planar and spatial objects is often modelled using one-dimensional size parameters, e.g. volume, area or average radius. We take a more detailed approach and model how the boundary of a growing object expands in time. We mainly consider star-shaped planar objects. The model can be regarded as a dynamic deformable template model. The limiting(More)
We propose a new statistical method for obtaining information about particle size distributions from sectional data without specific assumptions about particle shape. The method utilizes recent advances in local stereology. We show how to estimate separately from sectional data the variance due to the local stereological estimation procedure and the(More)
The orientational characteristics of fibres in digital images are studied. The fibres are modelled by a planar Boolean model whose typical grain is a thick (coloured) fibre. The aim is to make stereological inference on the rose of directions of the unobservable central fibres from observations made on a digital image of the thick fibres. For central(More)
In the present paper, we describe new robust methods of estimating cell shape and orientation in 3D from sections. The descriptors of 3D cell shape and orientation are based on volume tensors which are used to construct an ellipsoid, the Miles ellipsoid, approximating the average cell shape and orientation in 3D. The estimators of volume tensors are based(More)
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a technique for studying the active human brain. During the fMRI experiment, a sequence of MR images is obtained, where the brain is represented as a set of voxels. The data obtained are a realization of a complex spatio-temporal process with many sources of variation, both biological and technical. Most(More)
