To determine whether the renal arterial system has a fractal structure, the fractal dimension of renal angiograms from 52 necropsy cases was measured using an implementation of the box-counting method on an image analysis system. The method was validated using objects with known fractal dimensions. The method was accurate with errors of less than 1.5 per cent and reproducible with initial values within 1.2 per cent of the mean of ten sets of measurements (reliability coefficient 0.968, 95 per… CONTINUE READING
