Extraction of structural features of biological images and its evaluation by mathematical morphology

Yoshitaka Kimori, Nobuhiro Morone and Eisaku Katayama

Abstract: Image processing by mathematical morphology is a powerful tool for quantitative analyses of geometric features in a variety of images. We describe a practical method to extract and present various structural features included in biological images for further evaluation.

Key words: image processing, mathematical morphology, electron microscopy
