FlyLimbTracker

Description

  FlyLimbTracker is  a method that uses active contours to semi-automatically track body and leg segments from video image sequences of unmarked, freely behaving Drosophila flies. This approach can be used to measure leg segment motions during a variety of locomotor and grooming behaviors.

For now the plugin have to be downlaoded directly from the EPFL website (see link), not from the search bar as usual in ICY.

NeuroAnatomy Toolbox

Description

An R package for the (3D) visualisation and analysis of biological image data, especially tracings of single neurons. nat is the core package of a wider suite of neuroanatomy tools introduced at http://jefferislab.github.io.

ClearVolume

Description

ClearVolume is a real-time live 3D visualization library designed for high-end volumetric microscopes such as SPIM and DLSM microscopes. With ClearVolume you can see live on your screen the stacks acquired by your microscope instead of waiting for offline post-processing to give you an intuitive and comprehensive view on your data. The biologists can immediately decide whether a sample is worth imaging. ClearVolume can easily be integrated into existing Java, C/C++, Python, or LabVIEW based microscope software. It has a dedicated interface to MicroManager/OpenSpim/OpenSpin control software. ClearVolume supports multi-channels, live 3D data streaming from remote microscopes, and uses a multi-pass Fibonacci rendering algorithm that can handle large volumes. Moreover, ClearVolume is integrated into the Fiji/ImageJ2/KNIME ecosystem. You can now open your stacks with ClearVolume from within these popular frameworks for offline viewing.

classification of hemp fibers based on morphological features

Description

 

In this workflow, you can use MorphoLibJ to generate accurate morphometric measurements

  • First the fibers are segmented by mathematical morphology:
    • for example by using MorphoLibJ:
      • Create a marker image by creating a rough mask with extended regional maxima (similar to Find Max), such that you have one max per fiber
      • Use the marker controlled watershed (in MorpholLibJ/ Segmentation/ marker controlled watershed) : indicate the original grayscale image as the input, Marker will be your maxima image, select None for mask
      • it will create a label mask of your fibers
  •  In MorphoLibJ /analyze/ select Region Morphometry: this will compute different shape factors which are more robust than the ones implemented by default in ImageJ
  • Export the result table created to a csv file
  • Then for example in Matlab or R, you can apply a PCA analysis (Principal component analysis) followed by a k-means with the number of class (clusters) (different fibers type) you want to separate.
  • You can then add this class as a new feature to your csv file.
  • From this you can sort your labelled fibers into these clusters for a visual feedback or further spatial analysis

Grayscale granulometry

Description

This imageJ/Fiji plugin provides an analysis of the granulometry inside an image by mathematical morphology. It has sevral option for the structuring element to be used, and the size domain to be tested. The output will be both a curve of the remaining content of the image against the growing size of the structuring element, and the corresponding results table that could be then exported. It can deal with grayscale images directly, no need to segment the image first. This plugin can then be used to compare different texture based on some statistical analysis of the produced curve (for exemple comparison of the geometrical means to discriminate 2 textures). It is macro recordable as well. Programming Language: java Processes: successive erosion, dilation, closing or opening -> ANALYSIS User skills: Life Scientist, developers, analysts

MorphoLibJ

Description

MorphoLibJ is a library of plugin for ImageJ with functionalities for image processing such as filtering, reconstructing, segmenting, etc... Tools are based on Mathematical morphology with more rigorous mathematical approach than in the standard tools of ImageJ in particular for surface (or perimeter) measurements which are usually based on voxel counting.

Programming language: JAVA

Among features:

* Morphological operations :  Dilation, Erosion, Opening,  Closing , Top hat (white and black), Morphological gradient (aka Beucher Gradient), Morphological Laplacian, Morphological reconstruction, Maxima/Minima , Extended Maxima/Minima -Watershed (classic or controlled) -Image overlay -Image labelling -Geodesic diameter -Region Adjacency Graph -Granulometry curves, morphological image analysis.

FibrilTool

Description

Evaluates the orientation of fiber orientation pattern and plots the results in the image. It calculates gradient in x and y direction. - then calculates the eigenvector of nematic tensor, which is the orientation of the pattern.
