Relative Median Error (Log):

The table shows that the relative median difference of the calculated values was less than 10%. The highest error can be found comparing cases of fibrosis, which reaches 9,14%. This is due to the diverse composition of the CCD of the Model’s cameras compared with those of the Metrizer, which loses some details in fibrosis. The video camera of the Metrizer have an higher colour definition so as to take even smaller details.
