(a) Euclidean distance function applied to the binary image generated in Figure 2(b). The intensity of each pixel of the blue background indicates the distance of this pixel to the nearest point to the tumor. The more a pixel is far from the tumor, the more its intensity is bright. (b) Normalized histogram representing the number of vessels in function of their distance to the tumor.
