Paper Abstract

The quantitative analysis of human corneal endothelial cell patterns is analyzed with Fourier transform methods. The optical or digital Fourier transform of the pattern of endothelial cell borders is analyzed to yield the average cell area and the coefficient of variation of the average cell area. The more difficult problem of cell shape characterization is still under investigation. The advantage of the Fourier transform analysis is the parallel processing of the optical Fourier transform and the potential development of a hybrid digital-optical device for the rapid analysis of large numbers of endothelial specular photomicrographs
