Paper Abstract

This paper describes the use of entropy to quantify leakage of large molecules in a microvascular system. This measure can be used as a global parameter to characterize leakage. A software package for analysis of a sequence of images comprising leakage in rat cremaster tissue has been developed. The analysis is based on the statistics of both gray level components and frequency components of the images. Results show that entropy provides a better measure of leakage because it does not depend on variation in illumination or translation and rotation of image objects. Moreover entropy based on frequency components provides a more sensitive leakage measure than entropy based on gray level components.
