Self-similarity and fractal irregularity in pathologic tissues.


The irregularity and self-similarity under scale changes are the main attributes of the morphologic complexity of cells and tissues, either normal or pathologic. In other words, the shape of a self-similar object does not change when scales of measure change because any part of it might be similar to the original object. Size and geometric parameters of an… (More)
