Based on a fixed number of EM photomicrographs, a semiautomatic image analysis is made of normal gastrocnemius muscle fibers to obtain reference values for comparison with pathologic data. Z disc, mitochondria, tubular system, and sarcoplasmic reticulum are measured. It is stated that no definite fiber type differentiation is possible based on these quantitative data. However, measurements of Z disc and mitochondria are suggestive of such a differentiation. On the other hand, all data reach a… CONTINUE READING
