Useful clinical information will often result from determinations of organ and lesion tissue volumes from measurements of computed tomographic (CT) cross sections. This paper discusses simple applications of stereology to volume estimations of organs and disease processes. The method is applied to CT sections and, for equivalent accuracy, is less time comsuming than planimeter or CT scanner region of interest outlining and measurements.
