We have a series of tissue slices that have tumour within them and we
would like to quantify the area within each slice that is occupied by
tumour.  Is there a cheap or free program that will assist in this?
either by automatically looking for colours or for a user to manual draw
round a shape and it give you the area?

Not exactly bioconductor related but the idea is to quantify this and
then do various bioinformatics on it.  Hope you forgive me.
