AIM To assess the sampling variability of computer-aided, fractal-corrected measures of fibrosis in liver biopsies. METHODS Samples were derived from six to eight different parts of livers removed from 12 patients with clinically and histologically proven cirrhosis undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation. Sirius red-stained sections with a thickness of 2 mum were digitized using a computer-aided image analysis system that automatically measures the surface of fibrosis, as well as its… CONTINUE READING
