Stereological estimators of length and surface area based on measurements in an isotropic slice through a fixed point are described. Measurements of three-dimensional angles are not needed. The estimators depend only on distance measurements. The variance of the length estimator is studied in some detail. Applications to particle analysis and second-order stereology are discussed.
