Endocardial cushion tissue and ventricular myocardium were quantified by point count planimetry and Cavalieri's method [see details in (Mandarim-de-Lacerda & del Sol)].
Planimetry of sandstone thin sections was performed using a point counter of Eltinor type.
To determine the rate of contraction of wounds, wound surface was traced on a transparent graph paper and the surface area was measured by planimetry. The period of epithelialization was considered as the total number of days needed for eschar shedding without any remains of raw wound.
Patients of mitral stenosis were diagnosed on transthoracic echocardiographic assessment on planimetry and color doppler methods.
Volumes of both maxillary sinuses were calculated using the planimetry method with ImageJ software.
There was very severe mitral stenosis (mitral valve area calculated by planimetry was 0.8 cm2) with thickened and calcified leaflets.
Planimetry was measured on digitized images with x40 magnification of H & E stained sections.
The PV area cannot be calculated by planimetry using two-dimensional echocardiography because the en face view of PV is generally unavailable (4).
Wound area was calculated using computerized planimetry scanned images (DSC-W610[R], Sony, Tokyo, Japan) and Image-Pro Plus 4.5[R] (Media Cybernetics, Silver Spring, MD, USA), previously calibrated.
Although this estimation method is straightforward, validating it is difficult because the craniectomy base cannot be precisely defined to facilitate computer-assisted planimetry.
Infarct volume ([mm.sup.3]) was calculated as 2 mm (thickness of the slice) x sum of the infarction area ([mm.sup.2]) in all slices using computerized planimetry (PC-based image tool software).
