The objective of this project was to create code using functions found in MATLAB Image Processing Toolbox, such as edge detection, thresholding, and morphology to isolate the desired ellipsoidal particles in images obtained from experiments. The code was to become a research tool that provides the user with the area, minor axis, major axis, and aspect ratio of each individual ellipsoid.
