Abstract

Automatic image analysis has been employed to use the occlusion method for the quantitative determination of coexistence. Also a method has been developed using the dilatation function of the IBAS image analyzer combined with the performance of a logical operation “and”, to quantitatively evaluate the codistribution of profiles. Thus, this procedure allowed the determination of a dilated overlap area (FADAB), which could be related to the mean dilated field area (FADA +FADB)/2.
