Bio Image Analyst

  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.

By combining multiple image alignment and tracing into one program, Reconstruct (TM) allows images to be processed more efficiently. Tracing can be done directly on the transformed images and alignments can be asily modified. Reconstruct (TM) was developed from years of experience working with high magnification serial section images of brain tissue. (Extracted from User Manual)


Free-D is a three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction and modeling software. It allows to generate, process and analyze 3D point and surface models from stacks of 2D images. Free-D is an integrated software, offering in a single graphical user interface all the functionalities required for 3D modeling. It runs on Linux, Windows, and MacOS. Free-D is developed by the Modeling and Digital Imaging team of the Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin, INRA Versailles, France.


Neuron studio is a software package to reconstruct neurons from 3D confocal images. Reconstruction can be done manually, semi-manually or fully automatic. The images as well as the detected objects are rendered in 3D. A spine detection and classification function is also included. Results can be exported as a text file with coords of the spines. It seems that active development has stopped in 2009.
