This paper describes a technique to develop high-resolution three-dimensional (3D) images of microvasculature structures in curettage, hysterectomy or endometrial resection biopsies using parallel histological serial sections. Employing a labelled streptavidin-biotin-alkaline phosphatase (LSAB(+)) method and visualising by using DAB(+) with the primary antibody, mouse anti human Q-Bend-10, the images were directly digitised from a light microscope into the KS400 Universal Image Processing and Analysis software via a CCD colour camera; binary images of the structures were created and the binary images were exported into VoxBlast 3D rendering software to view still and rotating 3D images on a computer monitor. This in turn enabled hard copies of the full sequence to be printed.
