Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF 3D MICROSCOPIC NEURON IMAGES
(FR) METHODES ET SYSTEMES D'ANALYSE D'IMAGES NEURONALES MICROSCOPIQUES TRIDIMENSIONNELLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and apparatus are provided for the automated analysis of 3D neuron images acquired by fluorescence microscopy techniques such as confocal laser scan microscopy and multi-photon laser scan microscopy. The new methods and apparatus can be used for the segmentation and detection of dendrites and dendritic spines, and for the extraction of biologically significant features, including dendrite number, length and volume, spine number and density, spine length, volume, shape, type, and the like.
(FR)L'invention concerne des méthodes et des appareils permettant l'analyse automatisée d'images neuronales tridimensionnelles acquises par des techniques de microscopie par fluorescence, telles qu'une microscopie de scannage laser confocal et une microscopie de scannage laser multi-photons. Ces méthodes et appareils peuvent être utilisés dans la segmentation et la détection de dendrites et d'épines dendritiques et dans l'extraction de caractéristiques importantes biologiquement, notamment, le nombre, la longueur et le volume de dendrites, le nombre et la densité d'épines, leur volume, forme, type et similaire.
