Image processing methods can also be used to determine the geometric center of any object. The object must first be determined by segmentation (binarization) of the image. For example, in the case of a triangle, the geometric center of the area is at the intersection of the medians.
The perimeter of objects can be determined along both the contour and along a convex shell.
The length and width of objects can be determined.
medeaLAB can measure surfaces of objects regardless of their shape.
The gray value distribution within objects can be determined by a homogeneity factor.
The form factor, and as a special form of it, the degree of roundness (deviation from the circular shape), can be determined.
The resulting centerline can be used for the analysis of rod or threaded objects (also with branches).
The movement behavior of an object can be classified by its traveled trajectory patterns.
The local convexity of object contours can be determined and used for further geometric analysis.
Different extensions (e.g. Flagelles, Fimbria or Pili) of organisms can be detected and determined.
