Stereological Assessment of Developing Mouse Ovarian Follicles in an in vitro Culture System Academic Article uri icon


  • The aim of this project was to validate the use of ovarian follicular diameter measurement as an indicator of growth using stereology as an independent measure. A strong linear correlation was observed between follicular volume and diameter, and between follicular volume and the total number of granulosa cells. These results have provided a useful validation of a widely used technique for determining follicular growth in vitro.
