THICKNESS MEASUREMENT

Purpose of the study: Measure the average thickness of a ROI inside several kind of tissue and for all types of staining method (HE, IF, IHC).

Using a color texture analysis method, the Region Of Interest is segmented from the initial image. Texture and color provide robust and high level features that allow to process a wide range of staining. For difficult cases, where an accurate identification of the ROI is not possible, we have also developed an interactive method to allow a user to define easily upper and lower boundaries.

The above exemple shows the segmentation of a human skin where we want to measure the thickness of each skin layer. For more information about our human skin staining, check out our page Cometic Testing.
