Table 2 Parameters used for automatic quantification of SNP structures

From: Changes in the micromorphology of the corneal subbasal nerve plexus in patients after plaque brachytherapy

Component pixels number of pixels identified as nerve fibres
Nerve fibre components number of separate nerve fibre networks
Skeleton pixels number of pixels representing the medial axes of nerve fibres
Single nerve fibres number of all nerve segments between nerve branches and nerve ends
Total nerve fibre length/average single nerve fibre length length of all nerve fibres in the image area/average length of single nerve fibres
Nerve fibre density length of all fibres in respect to 1 mm2
Number of connectivity points number of nerve fibres entering or leaving the image area to the outside
