Abstract
This paper describes the application of digital image processing to the morphological evaluation of human corneal endothelial cell patterns. This morphological evaluation is used in both basic and clinical ophthalmology. There is interest in investigating the fundamental processes involved in the pattern formation and the variation in the pattern over time. Digital image processing and analysis of the binary segmented images of cell boundaries can be used to determine for each cell border the following features as: area, perimeter, aspect ratio, roundness, form factor, fractal dimension, length, breadth, width, equivalent diameter, x and y center of gravity, orientation angle, and moment angle. The question of the nature of the physical processes which result in the dynamic polygonal cell patterns is presented.
