Unbiased estimates of breast volume may be obtained in vivo from systematic series of MR images acquired in accordance with the Cavalieri method of modern design-based stereology. The method does not require any assumptions to be made regarding breast shape. If point counting techniques are used to obtain the required breast section areas estimates, 10-15 min analysis (i.e. counting about 250 points on 12 to 16 images) ensures that the contribution of sectioning and point counting to the… CONTINUE READING
