Cell tracking is a common bio-image analysis task. In this session we will learn about the basic principles behind cell tracking. We will go through cell segmentation, spot detection techniques such as Difference of Gaussian, linking, matching and will see how to do cell tracking in practice using TrackMate in Fiji.
This chapter is part of this book. The chapter introduces GPU-accelerated image processing in ImageJ/Fiji. The reader is expected to have some pre-existing knowledge of ImageJ Macro programming. Core concepts such as variables, for-loops, and functions are essential. The chapter provides basic guidelines for improved performance in typical image processing workflows.
