A computer program designed for the stereological measurement of fibers was written for use with a ZEISS CSM 950 Scanning Electron Microscope SEM. This program utilized the ZEISS build-in Kontron Image Analyzer to access measurements of a variety of parameters for fiber analysis of images from a video camera, light microscope or SEM. The program was written to permit interaction between the menu program displayed on the TV monitor and the keyboard or mouse. This increased capability permits the operator to change parameters within the measurement program depending on the type of fiber sample. Since research presently being conducted in these laboratories on ballistic fibers, including biotechnologically derived fibers, requires information about fiber size, shape, etc., developing a menu-oriented computer program facilitates that purpose.
