ZEN Intellesis Trainable Segmentation


Perform Advanced Image Segmentation and Processing across Microscopy Methods

Overcome the bottleneck of segmenting your Materials Science images and use ZEISS ZEN Intellesis, a module of the digital imaging software ZEISS ZEN.
Independent of the microscope you used to acquire your image data, the algorithm of ZEN Intellesis will provide you with a model for automated segmentation after training. Reuse the model on the same kind of data and beneft from consistent and repeatable segmentation, not influenced by the operator. 
ZEN Intellesis offers a straightforward, ease-to-use workflow that enables every microscope user to perform advanced segmentation tasks rapidly.

3D confocal noise simulator


This Matlab code simulates the noise of the confocal laser scanning microscope depending on the depth in the image stack (serial sections). Using the stack of binary images, it applies different levels of noise in the signal and background parts of the images to simulate confocal images. This is useful for generating "virtual ground truth" images with known values of sample rotation and distortion. 



TeraStitcher is a free tool that enables the stitching of Teravoxel-sized tiled microscopy images even on workstations with relatively limited resources of memory (<8 GB) and processing power. It exploits the knowledge of approximate tile positions and uses ad-hoc strategies and algorithms designed for such very large datasets. The produced images can be saved into a multiresolution representation to be efficiently visualized (e.g. Vaa3D-TeraFly) and processed.

The invention comprises a software tool, NeuronMetrics, which functions as a set of modules that run in the open-source program ImageJ. NeuronMetrics features a novel method for estimating neural “branch number” (a measure of the axonal complexity) from two-dimensional images. In addition, the tool features a novel method for modeling neural structure in large “gaps” that result from image artifacts.

Neurolucida is a powerful tool for creating and analyzing realistic, meaningful, and quantifiable neuron reconstructions from microscope images. Perform detailed morphometric analysis of neurons, such as quantifying 1) the number of dendrites, axons, nodes, synapses, and spines, 2) the length, width, and volume of dendrites and axons, 3) the area and volume of the soma, and 4) the complexity and extension of neurons.

TurtleSeg: 3D Image Segmentation Software

TurtleSeg is an interactive 3D image segmentation tool. TurtleSeg has an automated system, Spotlight, for automatically directing the user towards the next steps. Typically, a user loads a 3D image and then manually contour a sparse number of slices, the full 3D segmentation can then be built automatically.
