Image processing steps used to generate quantitative outputs from haematoxyling and eosin-stained placental sections. The various stages of processing are graphically illustrated in the following sequence: (A) original image (magnification x400); (B) preprocessing step following removal of partial outlines and non-terminal villi; (C) adjusted threshold to generate solid red pixelated areas; (D) computerized measurement of area of terminal villi using the resultant outlines.
