The glandular structure in the uterine epithelium of three groups of patients on standard superovulatory regimes was studied using a fully automated image analysis system. It was found that one treatment (buserelin stimulation) produced more glandular area than either of the other two. We suggest that buserelin gives the morphometric appearance of the most normal endometrial glands and find that our morphometric analysis is a reliable means to evaluate glandular structure in patients on superovulatory therapy.
