The Image Measurement Software allows you to calibrate and measure the images, with tools for line measurements, areas, ellipses and circles, angles, calipers and point counting, along with many other features.

The software is configured to the user’s requirements and SOP’s in the laboratory so that the measurements shown below will require a digital signature and an approval stage. This makes the Measurement Module a simple and secure way to measure features on your images. The results are displayed on a screen and saved as an overlay which is separate to the image, with immediate results that are displayed on a screen. The measurements can then simply be exported to an excel or a report.

The list below represents an overview of the measurement functions that the user can use interactively with the mouse:

  • Point-to-point linear measurement.

  • Regressed line measurements.

  • Radius, diameter, area, and perimeter on ellipses and circles.

  • Drawn circles, regressed circles, and circles by radius.

  • Area, perimeter, and X/Y dimensions for rectangles.

  • Total length of segmented lines, including segment lengths.

  • Area and perimeter of irregular shapes, drawn freehand or by polygon.

  • Manual “point counts” for tagging and summing events as they are clicked.

  • Angle measurements, including length of lines.

  • Arc measurements including a definition of center point, chord lengths, sweep angles, and radii.

  • Parallel line callipers for defining multiple layers or zones.

  • Even more measurement and analysis tools are available in the Image Analysis Module

Additional Features:

  • PAX-it! measurements are placed on the image as an annotation layer, which may be exported to reports, presentations, or files.
  • Easy-to-use features include multiple levels of undo/redo, grouping, saving & reloading on new images, and more.
  • Special “Measurement Tolerance Indicator” allows input of specs, to indicate if a measurement falls out of specifications.
  • Built in calibration interface is easy to use.
  • Images can be measured in microns, millimetres, centimetres, inches, pixels, feet, meters, and mils, and measurements units may be converted.
  • Place a measurement scale bar as on overlay on the image.
  • Extend or trim measurement lines relative to easily align them to other measurement objects.
  • Measurement values may be stamped on images.
  • Measurements are displayed in an on-screen table, including immediate statistics and graphs.
  • Measurement information can be included in a report template created in Microsoft Word or Excel. Reports can also include the marked up image.
  • Measurements may be named by the user, and the names displayed on the image, in the summary table, and in reports.
  • Measurement line sequences may be defined, for labs with repetitive multiple measurements. A tremendous time saver!
  • Auto-incrementing of measurement lines is available. If a “Leg1” measurement is made, the next measurement line will automatically be titled “Leg2”.
  • Measurement items may be drawn starting at the nearest, midpoint, centre, endpoint, tangent, perpendicular or intersection of other measurement items.
  • Colour separation of 24 bit image into the red, green and blue planes
  • Calibration log is maintained for reference.
