Summary This paper describes a new distance transform method used for measuring fiber diameter in electrospunnanofiber webs. In this algorithm, the effect of intersection is eliminated, which brings more accuracy to the measurement.The method is tested by a series of simulated images with known characteristics as well as some real webs obtainedfrom electrospinning of PVA. Our method is compared with the distance transform method. The results obtainedby our method were significantly better than the distance transform, indicating that the new method could successfullybe used to measure electrospun fiber diameter.
