Joseph :
Yes. You can look at the Euler Number of the object. This is
returned from regionprops() in the image processing toolbox.
Basically the process is this (for almost all image processing
1. threshold image to binarize it
2. connected components labeling, using bwlabel() or bwconncomp()
3. regionprops(), to make the measurements

Here is the definition of Euler Number:
'EulerNumber' ? Scalar that specifies the number of objects in the
region minus the number of holes in those objects. This property is
supported only for 2-D input label matrices. regionprops uses 8-
connectivity to compute the EulerNumber measurement.

My demo at
will help you to do the measurement.
