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…
