Although its origins can be traced back many centuries, biostereo-metrics as a focus of scientific attention is less than 20 years old. It is only 15 years since the first biostereometrics laboratory was established at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. When SPIE sponsored its first biomedical symposium on quantitative imagery in the biomedical sciences in 1971, there was a mere handful of stereo-metrical ly oriented papers. In 1982, the 3rd International Symposium on Biostereometrics held in San Diego attracted over 70 presentations from 21 countries - a very rapid growth.
