Re: Query about the use of the MRI Wound Assay Tool

Volker Baecker
Hello Charmaine,
you can see the result I get on the image in the attachment. I'd say it
doesn't look to bad. But you have to see if it works for more than one
image. What I did:

Install the macro toolset from the attachment by copying it into the
folder macros>toolsets of your *FIJI* installation.

Install the plugins FeatureJ and MorphoLibJ.

Restart FIJI and select the toolset.

1. Right-click on the m-button of the toolset and set the parameter
values as following:

radius close: 8
radius open: 5
radius big close: 22
min. size: 100000
sigma for coherency: 1.4
window size for coherency: 3

2. Process>Subtract Background  with radius 15 and light background
selected.

3. Edit>Invert

4. Image>Adjust Brightness & Contrast, Auto

5. Press the m-button of the toolset

6. File>Revert to see the result on your original image.

Best regards,
Volker Bäcker
