Contemporary analysis of human or experimental muscle biopsies includes documentation of muscle fiber size for each fiber type. A semi-automated system has been devised to classify fibers, measure diameters, and display results. Special stains convert different fiber types to specific shades of gray. The microscope image is transmitted by a TV camera to a picture-processing computer. Muscle cells are recognized, classified, and measured for their minimum diameter. Data on consecutive fibers are… CONTINUE READING
