Quantifying the degree of cell clumping in an image


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?


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.
