Cuanto: A Tool for Quantification of Bone Tissue in the Proximityof Implants
2011 (English)In: Proceedings of SSBA 2011, 2011Conference paper (Other academic)
Abstract—Quantitative analysis of histological images ofbone-implant samples is a important step in the evaluationof bone-implant integration. However, the quantificationis a tedious task when carried out manually in the lightmicroscope. To automatize the quantification, Cuanto, asoftware for measurements of bone area and estimation ofbone-implant contact length in histological images of boneimplantsamples has been developed. The quantificationresult of the software is compared to manual measurements;area measurements correspond well with the manualquantification whereas significant differences in the lengthestimation is observed. The possibility of zooming in downto cell-level when quantifying manually is believed to renderthe discrepancy.
