I was wondering if it is possible to flag objects touching image border instead of removing them and to find this info in the final exportToExcel output file?
I’m trying to locate nuclei into muscle fibers on histological sections. Nuclei are in the periphery of fibers, sometimes in-between 2 of them. If one fiber is touching the image border, then the nuclei can be mislocated to the second fiber if I remove touching objects. Keeping all objects works well but Area/shape analysis cannot be performed on truncated fibers that’s why I would like to be able to filter out border-touching fibers in the final excel file.
I uploaded an example picture (fibers are red delimited, nuclei are blue, white lines represent nuclei to fiber center of gravity relation obtained with the “relate” module)
for example the bottom-left fiber has 2/3 nuclei that are mi-slocated if that fiber is remove because touching the image border.
I already tried to keep all fibers and filter after in the datatable using shape features but it is not robust and vary from image to image.
