Abstract:
This work presents the software implementation of a tissue engineering image analysis tool through the study of several biomaterials by means of different microscopy techniques (optical, scanning electron, and atomic force microscopy). With this tool, different quantitative information has been extracted from the microscopy image analysis of these biomaterials, as the number of objects, their mean size and the area they cover. Morphological characteristics, as the roundness or the porosity have been also obtained. All these quantitative information has permitted an statistical analysis over the obtained results.
