Paper Abstract

A fast method is developed to quantitatively characterize the shape of human corneal endothelial cells with fractal theory and applied to analyze microscopic photographs of human corneal endothelial cells. The results show that human corneal endothelial cells possess the third characterization parameter-- fractal dimension, besides another two characterization parameter (its size and shape). Compared with tradition method, this method has many advantages, such as automatism, speediness, parallel processing and can be used to analyze large numbers of endothelial cells, the obtained values are statistically significant, it offers a new approach for clinic diagnosis of endothelial cells.
