Bio Image Analyst

The MIPAV (Medical Image Processing, Analysis, and Visualization) application enables quantitative analysis and visualization of medical images of numerous modalities such as PET, MRI, CT, or microscopy. Using MIPAV's standard user-interface and analysis tools, researchers at remote sites (via the internet) can easily share research data and analyses, thereby enhancing their ability to research, diagnose, monitor, and treat medical disorders.

spot detection and codistribution analysis

WASH, Exo84, and cortactin spot detection and codistribution analysis To detect endosomes, an automatic Otsu threshold is applied to the Gaussian-filtered MT1-MMP–positive endosome image (= 1.5 pixels for the sample image). Statistics about each endosome are then saved, for example random positioning of spots can be compared to actual positioning. For each endosome, WASH and Exo84 (or WASH and cortactin) spots are searched for in a neighboring of x pixels in their respective channel.
