Contribution of Measurement to morphologic Diagnostics
Pathologists' diagnostics are based upon morphology, which means to distinguish between structure and function. Morphology is the evaluation of biological structures. These are ordered clusters of material (genes, nuclei, cells, organs, etc.) that remain constant during the period of detection and observation. The observation time is an important factor that defines biological structures and diagnostics too. The implementation of measurement - based diagnostic algorithms improves the accuracy and serves for quality assurance in tissue - based diagnosis.
