  • When an image is selected, the Actions menu contains a Run Cavalieri Volume menu item for running a Cavalieri volume experiment.
  • The Navigation menu is used to traverse the hierarchy of image, experiment, view, section group and section or to move from one section to the next.

Run a Cavalieri volume experiment

To run a Cavalieri volume experiment:

  • Select an image, open the Actions menu and select Run Cavalieri Volume.
  • Enter structures whose volumes are to be estimated and a grid size determining test system area per point (A/P).
  • Click the Run Cavalieri Volume button to create a new Cavalieri volume experiment on the selected image.
  • Test systems of points are overlain uniform randomly on image sections.
  • To count points, navigate to an experiment section and use your mouse to click points on or off. Click once to toggle a point on or off or click and drag to toggle multiple points on or off.
  • Use the View menu to switch between structures.
  • The Cavalieri Volume experiment overview page shows: slice interval (T), area per point (A/P), volume of each structure, total number of points counted per structure and points counted per structure per section.

Left and right arrow keys can be used to navigate between previous and next image sections without the need to open the Navigation menu.
