Paper Abstract

The topics addressed in this paper include (1) computer reconstruction of the capillary tree of the human renal glomerulus from serial sections, (2) computer visualizations for the purpose of analyzing the resulting 3D structures, and (3) computer quantification of these structures using 3D morphology. The purpose of the research reported is to develop methodology that will permit better understanding of the physical structure of the human renal glomerulus and, in a more general manner, the structure of 3D biological networks embedded in volumetric data.
