I would like to analyze close-up images of human hair. My goal is to detect and count the number of hair strands and determine their width, but I am having a hard time binarizing the image. Seems like there is too much noise. Any suggestions ?
Image is below:
I used the following code and got a result that does not detect all the hairs:
arm2 = ColorNegate[DeleteSmallComponents[Binarize[arm, 0.42]]]
