Images created by different cameras or from different angles are comparable if both images include the same markers for calculating the reference area. Planimetry may be combined with other methods (PHILLIPS et al. 1991; NAGIN et al. 1995; von RUCKMANN et al. 1997) to calculate the activity and amount of hyperfluorescent leakage. square of the distance between the two marked points was 79,380 pixels and the area of interest contained 3665 pixels.
