Recent evidence suggests that fibrous degeneration (hyalinization) may play a major role[3,6] The data suggest that fibrous degeneration in small myomas ([is less than] 1 cm) does not reflect outgrowth of vascular supply, but rather represents an in vivo correlate of the senescence that occurs in myoma tissue maintained in vitro.[6,7] The purpose of the present study was to use morphometry to compare myoma cell size in a series of sizematched small uterine leiomyomas from age-matched premenopausal and postmenopausal women.
A number of very useful tables summarize examples of ecosystem-level properties (morphometry, fluxes, manipulations) of the various case studies.

Therefore, this study aimed to document the morphometry and morphology of the acetabulum within the Black African population in KwaZulu-Natal, thus improving data on the acetabula of the Black African population.

It is very difficult to analyse whether the spleen is normal or abnormal on the basis of its shape so this study has been undertaken to find out percentage of various shapes of spleen and its morphometry. It is the need of the present era to have accurate knowledge of morphology of spleen as it reveals ample of variations in its shape, size, about notches & fissures.

An unbiased technique for assessing the whole brain is voxel-based morphometry (VBM), which can be used to measure the cerebral volume of regions of the brain and concentration differences between tissues in structural MRI.
In this study, we investigated the difference in brain structure between normal subjects and patients with schizophrenia using T1-weighted images and analyzed the differences with voxel-based morphometry (VBM) and joint independent component analysis (jICA).
