How to quantify cytoskeleton density

Hello everyone,
I am trying to quantify actin density from a few confocal images. I came across this paper where they ‘skeletonize’ the images and quantify the actin density by using the following formula.


where n_{MF} and n_{Cell} are the pixel numbers constituting the skeletonized MFs and cell region respectively

I am just struggling to get the n_{MF} here. Anyone here can help me with this? Here is the link to the original paper - http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-313X.2009.04032.x/full

Many thanks!
Praveen

All good, managed to figure this out with another method :slight_smile:

Hi Praveen

For the benefit of the other forum members who might get into a similar situation, can you post a brief summary of how you resolved the problem.

Cheers
