Table 1 Parameters to quantify vascularization

From: Characterization and quantification of angiogenesis in rheumatoid arthritis in a mouse model using μCT

Model independent direct 3D parameters
Vessel density (vessel volume per total volume) VV/TV
Vessel surface VS
Vessel thickness V.Th 3D
Rod-model based parameters
Vessel thickness V.T h 2 D =4/ VS VV
Vessel spacing V.S p 2 D =V.T h 2 D 4 / π TV VV 1
Vessel number V. N 2 D = 4 π VV TV / V . T h 2 D
