Hi,

I am new to ImageJ and would really appreciate some direction, specifically in terms of shape analyses.

I have 4 pQCT images of slices of the shank(4%, 14%,38% and 66% of tibial length). I want to be able to perform shape analysis on the tibia part of the image only, identifying the centre of the bone as well as outer coordinates (any other shape related analyses would also be beneficial) The aim is to be able to use this to influence a finite element model.

I have downloaded BoneJ as a plugin. I have managed to crop the image to just include the tibia portion, performing shape analyses based on a cropped image to get the centroid x and y coordinate. However I am unsure how to do anything else in terms of shape analyses, or indeed if this is the correct way of doing it.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Olivia
