Histology and Microscopic Image Analyses - Short Profile

Histology / morphometry:

Conventional and immunohistochemical staining, especially hypothalamic and placental serial sections (paraffin and frozen sections), followed by stereology and computerized morphometry using microscopic image analysis:

Topographic - volumes, area percentages, total cell count, fetal-maternal exchange surface (placenta)

Cellular - numerical density, optical density, nuclear size, cell and cytoplasm size, nuclear-cytoplasmic ratio
