Quantification of Vessel Density in Myocardium by IHC


I’m rather new to ImageJ and the different tools and plug-ins out there. I have stained rat myocardium with antibodies against CD31, aSMA, and von Willibrand Factor to stain arteries and capillaries. Images are I would like to 1) quantify number of vessels and 2) Vessel Diameter per 10x image. Attached is a 20x image representative of the types of images i’d like to quantify (the signal should be brighter than these)

Does anyone know a tool/script/plugin that can be used for this application?

Thank you so much!

Hi SamirZaman
I am not sure whether you had a chance to read this section for particle analysis:

But before you do that you may want to do some some processing, here is a link for the entire application, it may be worthwhile to spend time in going through different function, and you can use that applicable for your images…

hope this helps…good luck!
