Description

Automated workflow for performing multiview reconstruction of large multiview, multichannel, multiillumination time-lapse SPIM data on a high performance computing (HPC) cluster or on a single workstation. 

Description

Spimagine is a python package to interactively visualize and process time lapsed volumetric data as generated with modern light sheet microscopes (hence the Spim part). The package provides a generic 3D+t data viewer and makes use of GPU acceleration via OpenCL. If provides further an image processor interface for the GPU accelerated denoising and deconvolution methods of gputools.

It is only for display (no analysis). The only drawback: it does not handle multichannel time lapse 3D data (only one channel at a time).

Description

AutoPilot is the open source project that hosts the general algorithm for fast and robust assessment of local image quality, an automated computational method for image-based mapping of the three-dimensional light-sheet geometry inside a fluorescently labeled biological specimen, and a general algorithm for data-driven optimization of the system state of light-sheet microscopes capable of multi-color imaging with multiple illumination and detection arms.

Description

An ImageJ/Fiji macro which measures quality through two stacks of images assumed to be acquired from two opposite angle of views using gray-level standard deviation.
