Morphometric techniques are now being widely applied to a variety of toxicologic problems in order to obtain reproducible and quantitative data about changes in lung structure caused by environmental pollutants. Many environmental pollutants cause lung injury which is concentrated in specific regions of the lung, such as, in small airways and in the proximal portions of alveolar ducts. Morphometric techniques to obtain unbiased estimates of tissue changes occurring in these specific regions are… CONTINUE READING
