The purpose of this study was to create a streamlined image processing protocol which isolates the internal elastic laminae (IEL) from an image stack taken on a confocal microscope. The projection of the isolated IEL can be used to investigate structural changes to the elastic laminae. Specifically, this process will be used in image analysis for a study on the effects of elastic laminae structure changes on mass transport.
