Quantifying the degree of cell clumping in an image

Hello,

is there a feature that quantifies the degree of cell clumping in an image? Or does somebody know what’s the best way of computing such a feature based on available features?

Thanks,
Steffen.

Hi Steffen,

One way to quantify clumping is to use MeasureObjectNeighbors. This module contains measurements such the percentage of an object boundary that is touching a neighbor, as well as the number of actual neighbors each object has. What qualifies as a “neighbor” can also be defined in the module as either adjacent or within some pixel distance.
