Abstract: We have created a method for measuring the orientation of cilia in the respiratory epithelium. Ciliary orientation is the direction perpendicular to the plane defined by the central tubules of the cilia and is an estimate of ciliary beat direction. Ciliary orientation can be estimated by measuring the angle between the plane defined by the central tubules and a reference line. The standard deviation of these measurements describes the variation present in the beat directions of the cilia. The reference line mu…
