Computer-aided morphometric applications (image analysis) in gynecologic pathology

Journal Article

The female genital tract gives rise to a wide spectrum of disease entities that are borderline abnormal on the one hand or borderline cancer on the other. While traditional criteria have been developed for the diagnosis of these lesions, based on cytological characteristics of cells and their architectural arrangements, the emerging area of morphometry (image analysis) has shown in some cases a greater degree of diagnostic precision than the eye. A description is given of the current status of such morphometric applications in gynecologic pathology.
