Outline of the algorithm to compute Collagen Alignment Index (CAI).
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
After segmenting the nuclei, cell-graph are built capturing the spatial distribution. Voronoi diagrams are built and the gradient vectors in each Voronoi compartment are calculated. A distribution of the angles between the cell-graph edges and the gradient vectors is calculated to find the CAI metric.
