The main objective is the count of objects, usually cells. In addition, the measurement of several morphological parameters, such as the diameter of cells, the length of vessels, etc., can also be important for the quantitative assessment of the features of a tissue. Whereas counting and measuring histological elements may appear easy, especially… CONTINUE READING
