Measuring cell roughness

I am extremely new to image processing and am currently struggling to find the best method to measure the roughness of cells. I tried using the roughness calculator plugin but the output do not seem to represent the cells. Could someone walk me through using Directionality for this use case?

I would first point you to this older thread that you may find helpful:

Basically - start with how you want mathematically define ‘roughness’… once you have a clear view on that - share it with us and we can perhaps better tailor/assist you in your analysis.
