Abstract: In recent research in bioimaging, quantitative treatment of biological morphological information captured by microscopy is very important for objective understanding of biological phenomena. This paper deals with essential methods of digital image processing and analysis for quantification of the biological information. Especially, causes of digital error and measurement error which occur during the process of image measurement are discussed.

Key words: Quantification, Image processing, Shape analysis, Segmentation
