The method of choice for obtaining quantitative (morphometric) data on lung structure in microscopy is stereology. Standards for the quantitative assessment of lung structure by stereology have been published as an official research statement of the American Thoracic Society and the European Respiratory Society (Hsia, Hyde, Ochs, Weibel: Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2010;181:394-418). These two webinars illustrate the principles of stereology and their practical application to the lung, including animal models of human lung disease, according to the ATS/ERS guidelines.
