The quantitative analysis of a polymer network is important for understanding its role in biological function. We developed a Matlab program to recognize and segment filaments in a 2-D image, and measure and describe the structure. Our algorithm improved the speed of the Lichtenstein Fiberscore segmentation algorithm by using matrix convolutions, compared filament length by the algorithms of Kulpa, Lichtenstein, and Kimura, and measured the number of branchpoints and Euler number.
