I have code for radius and height measurements for spray images. This code is overestimating the spray cloud height (i.e., rectangle height). I want to measure spray cloud height with out imcoming spray influence. I am attaching my code and reference image here. the height I want to measure is shown in the below picture with arrows.

You can sum the white pixels horizontally and then threshold it at some percentage of the max width
maxWidth = max(verticalProfile);
percentage = 0.5; % Adjust to take more or less of the blob.
topLine = find(verticalProfile > percentage * maxWidth, 1, 'first')
bottomLine = find(verticalProfile > percentage * maxWidth, 1, 'last')
% Draw lines there
yline(topLine, 'Color', 'r', 'LineWidth', 2);
yline(bottomLine, 'Color', 'r', 'LineWidth', 2);

Hello sir (@Image Analyst), Can I draw a inclined line instead of straight line? Here is the link for my question. Thanks in advance

clc; clear all; close all;

B2 = bwareafilt(B,1); % select the largest component with bwareafilt
subplot(3,1,2)
imshow(B2),

widthIndex = any(B2);
horizontalPixelWidth = find(widthIndex,1,'last')-find(widthIndex,1,'first');
B3 = imerode(B2,strel('line',10,0));
% use sum for every row
cs = sum(B3, 2);
mcs = max(cs);
inds = find(cs>mcs*0.3);

imshow(B3)
