that other techniques will emerge which may
bypass the need for such irradiation. Two side
benefits of such a development would be the
avoidance of a need for FTD laboratories to
handle radioactive materials (with all the
attendant safety and certification concerns), and
a vast increase in the speed of obtaining results.
Conclusion
Some of you may might remember that in the
past, there were numerous attempts to fully
automate the process of track characterization
and counting. I have no doubt that this endeavor
will resurface, stimulated by the advances in
technology and techniques briefly addressed
above. In particular, this task will be made easier
by the use of linear sensors (as in the new
Autoscan stages), increased camera resolution,
continually improving computing capability, and
advances in microscopy. In addition, new
