I have recently looked at CellProfiler & want to obtain cell area size and intensity.
If hoping to publish my work in a journal, is it acceptible to use the pixel values (and refer to the units as pixels) if you wish to compare cell size (cell surface area of each cell) between samples, or can it be converted to micrometers?
Also, is it acceptable to refer to intensity as arbitrary intensity units?
I am also finding it difficult to get the list of values for image intensity (total intensity for the whole image) to be exported into a spread sheet. Thought I had clicked the necessary options; is there any advice?
