GIL, Julio et al. Tangential Algorithm for Calculation of the Fractal Dimension of Kidney Tubuli Sections. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.1, pp.31-34. ISSN 0717-9502.

We have developed a new algorithm to calculate the fractal dimension of dog kidney proximal convoluted tubule section. This algorithm is intermediate between box-counting and perimeter-stepping algorithms. The result of this new algorithm and correlations found between fractal dimensions and other Euclidian values of these tubuli, suggest that this algorithm is adequate to calculate fractal dimensions by points

Keywords : Fractal; Kidney; Proximal convoluted tubuli.
