We describe a three-step algorithm for the morphometric analysis of color images of nerve specimens, currently used in the diagnosis of peripheral neuropathies. The algorithm first segments the images by applying a clustering method in the color space. It then identifies and eliminates irrelevant regions and, in the final step, calculates the diagnostic parameters required for clinical analysis. The results obtained on 25 images are reported and compared with corresponding measurements made by… CONTINUE READING
