  • Command line to measure the tortuosity of vessels using Distance Metric, Inflection Count Metric and Sum Of Angles Metric methods.

Right now, only the distance metric method is implemented.


  1. input data : .tre files = files containing the successive 3D positions of the centerline of the tubes (example : tubeTK/Data/Branch-truth.tre)
  2. mask : image specifying the ROI. Pixel intensity is 0 outside the ROI and ≠0 inside the ROI (example : tubeTK/Data/Branch.n010.mha)
  3. Methods
    1. Distance Metric (flag = d, default = true)
    2. Inflection Count Metric (flag = i, default = false)
    3. Sum Of Angles Metric (flag = s, default = false)
