A World Where Mathematics And Microscopy Meet: Geometric Probability In Stereology Part Two

Following on from Part 1, we’ll now take a look at the actual use of geometric probability in stereology, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of this technique. As you’ll know from the two-part introduction (here and here), stereology looks at the relativity between an object and its sections, while geometric probability allows a […]

A World Where Mathematics And Microscopy Meet: Geometric Probability In Stereology Part One

The study of geometric probability in stereology may seem like a large, overwhelming area of focus but, don’t panic, it’s not! In fact, it is a very specific field that is likely to come easy to those that excel in mathematics or science (yes that means you). However, the concept is not one that most […]

An Introduction to Stereology Part 2

A Biased Study It is easier to create a biased study than one without bias. However, acting in a cautious manner, outlining steps to provide guidance, and avoiding assumptions are some ways to prevent significant inaccuracies. You should also remove any preconceived theories. A researcher cannot and should not assume these variables true, but rather […]

An Introduction To Stereology Part 1

According to the International Society for Stereology, the area of scientific study encompassed by this term is that which analyzes solids. If that all sounds a bit too much like materials science, then for us microscopists, it’s really about the review of three-dimensional objects (mainly tissues) by making horizontal and vertical incisions. Stereology can be […]
