Mary Spring: A comparison of 2D and 3D imaging tools to quantify structure of the human placenta
MicroCT imaging and traditional stereology of human placental villi or vasculature were compared for the first time. While both methods yielded similar results for villous surface architecture (P>0.99), microCT underestimated microvascular measurements (p≤0.0015) due to image processing limitations. Improved AI-processing of MicroCT datasets may enhance structural analysis in the future.
