Some Stereological Principles in Morphometric Cytology
In this paper several statistical methods are developed that are of use in morphometric cytology, for the purpose of obtaining three-dimensional information from two-dimensional measurements made on
Basic stereological relationships for quantitative microscopical anatomy--a simple systematic approach.
TLDR
Methods for estimating previously neglected stereological relations are presented and possible biological applications of the principles are also discussed.
The Application of Morphometric and Stereological Principles to Epithelial Tissues: Theoretical and Practical Considerations
TLDR
By making comparisons between normal and altered tissue or cellular structure, the experimental biologist can learn and ultimately understand the mechanisms which govern and control normal and diseased tissues.
Stereology of cellular reaction patterns.
TLDR
Morphometric (strictly stereologic) methods permit the synthesis of quantitative models having the coordinates of three-dimensional space, of organelle, cell, and tissue structures, which provides a sounder basis than has previously been available for the detailed comparison of the results of structural investigations with those obtained by other techniques, e.g., physiology or biochemistry.
AN INTRODUCTION TO MORPHOMETRIC CYTOLOGY AND ITS APPLICATION TO BOTANICAL RESEARCH
TLDR
This paper introduces botanists to the basic concepts of morphometry as well as demonstrates their application, and defines the basic principles, and gives examples of their application.
A New Stereological Method for Determination of the Size of Spherical objects in Electron Microscopy: Its Application to Small Lymphocytes of the Mouse Thymus*
TLDR
A new stereological method is proposed and its principle and procedure are described and it was applied for determination of the sizes of small lymphocytes of the mouse thymus to reexamine the results reported in the previous paper.
Ultrastructural morphometry of blastogenesis
TLDR
The morphometric attributes of stimulated (blast-derived) lymphocytes in mouse axillary lymph nodes have been established using stereological and autoradiographic methods and alterations in cell surface are discussed in the context of known biochemical differences accompanying blastogenesis.

PRACTICAL STEREOLOGICAL METHODS FOR MORPHOMETRIC CYTOLOGY
TLDR
Some principles which allow the estimation of volumetric ratios, surface areas, surface-to-volume ratios, thicknesses of tissue or cell sheets, and the number of structures are reviewed and presented in general form.
Stereologic techniques in microscopy.
TLDR
In this paper a number of practical techniques are presented which have proved useful in light and electron microscopy and which are both rapid and simple.

A QUANTITATIVE STEREOLOGICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE ULTRASTRUCTURE OF NORMAL RAT LIVER PARENCHYMAL CELLS
  • A. Loud
  • Biology
    The Journal of cell biology
  • 1968
TLDR
Structural homogeneity is found in over 80% of normal rat liver parenchymal cells, with most of the significant differences being confined to those cells immediately surrounding the central veins.
SCANNING METHODS: VOLUME QUANTITATION OF TISSUES, CELLS AND SUBCELLULAR COMPONENTS
  • A. Carpenter
  • Biology
    The journal of histochemistry and cytochemistry : official journal of the Histochemistry Society
  • 1966
TLDR
Volume of fresh specimens can be accomplished by any one of three methods, and often components of fresh organs can be enumerated by injecting dilute solutions of supravital dyes such as neutral red or janus green which differentiate islets from acini.
Ultrastructural differences between thymic and lymph node small lymphocytes of mice: nucleolar size and cytoplasmic volume.
TLDR
It could be shown that thymic, as compared to lymph node cortical small lymphocytes, have a smaller mean nucleolar volume, and are of smaller size due to less cytoplasm, while the mean nuclear volume does not differ significantly from that of small lymphocyte located in the cortex of lymph nodes.
Determining Sizes and Distribution of Sizes of Spherical Bodies such as Chromaffin Granules in Tissue Sections
TLDR
Size determination for chromaffin granules is easier than for many other inclusions or organelles because their profiles are usually rounded in section and in isolated granule preparations implying a spherical form and so orientation presents no problem.
A QUANTITATIVE DESCRIPTION OF CORTISONE-INDUCED ALTERATIONS IN THE ULTRASTRUCTURE OF RAT LIVER PARENCHYMAL CELLS
TLDR
A stereological comparison of the hepatic parenchymal cells from 125-g male rats given a daily injection for 6 days of either 5 mg of cortisone acetate or saline (controls) was carried out with both light and electron microscopy, results in an increase in average paren chymal cell cytoplasmic volume and decrease in average nuclear diameter.
WOUND HEALING AND COLLAGEN FORMATION : V. Quantitative Electron Microscope Radioautographic Observations of Proline-H3 Utilization by Fibroblasts
TLDR
Morphologic observations of regions in the fibroblast interpretable as possible sites of communication between the ergastoplasm and the extracellular space, together with kinetic studies, permit the suggestion of an alternate pathway of passage of at least some of the synthesized protein directly from the ergastsoplasmic cisternae to the cell exterior.
A MORPHOMETRIC STUDY ON THE THICKNESS OF THE PULMONARY AIR-BLOOD BARRIER
TLDR
This analysis suggested that the gas conductance of the barrier is nearly optimal if one considers the mass of tissue and the minimal barrier thickness as fixed properties which are determined by other functional requirements on the alveolo-capillary membrane.
