Hello All,
I am taking a course in image analysis, and have "been exposed" through this
course, to three different image programs.  The one I found easiest to use
is called MetaMorph.  One of the guys in the class is a rep for the company,
which was a big help because he was able to show us the ins and outs of all
the programs.  (Believe it or not, he was not biased).  Anyway, of the
three, MetaMorph, ImagePro and Optimus, MetaMorph comes out on top for ease
of use and features included, and ImagePro has the most features, but can be
difficult to figure out.  If anyone is interested, the guy in my class is
Mike Davis, and the number I have on his card is 800-976-7562.
The class has been a ball, by the way.

I've also tried Image pro, but only on a Mac - if you use a Mac, don't
invest in it - there were several bugs I found which the company stated they
had no intention of fixing for Mac's.  PC version is OK - but again, not
specific for bone - compared to the Osteomeasure system.

Hi, Gayle,
	I was surprised no one mentioned the Image Pro software.  Great
and powerful stuff! Of course, I only use about 10 of the 200 or so
features it contains.  I think most microscope companies carry this  and
will readily quote you prices.
	John Tarpley might also have a few favorites in this area.
	Happy shopping!
