Osteomeasure is a PC based system, as is Bioquant.  The only Mac system I
am aware of (specifically for bone histomorphometry) is/was a system
developed in the '80's called KSS Stereology.  It was upgraded several
times, through the early 90's.  However, to my knowledge (and I haven't
kept up with this program), it has not been upgraded since - and is most
likely not Y2K compatible.   Also, many of the researchers using the KSS
program have since switched to Osteomeasure.  The other possible solution
for MAC's is NIH image, which someone else suggested.  I'm sure there are
others, but these are the ones I've used.

Does Osteomeasure (or any other program for that matter) work well on a Mac?
