Segmentation of elastic fibres in images of vessel wall sections stained with Weigert's resorcin-fuchsin

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The elastic fibres are an essential component of the extracellular matrix in blood vessel walls that allows a long-range of deformability and passive recoil without energy input. The quantitative determination of elastic fibres will provide information on the state of the vascular wall and to determine the role and behaviour of this… (More)
