Fundamentals of Image Analysis

Presenter: Christian Tischer, EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany

Fundamentals of Image Analysis - Topics
  • What are the sources of image data?
  • What is bioimage analysis?
  • Bioimage analysis is followed by statistical data analysis
  • Quantification, reproducibility, and statistics are state-of-the-art
  • What is the content of an image and how to visualize the contents of an image?
  • Image formation: blur and noise
  • Image restoration: deblurring and denoising
  • Image processing: convolution filter
  • Image segmentation
  • Image processing facilitates image segmentation
  • Morphological (rank) filtering
  • Machine learning for image segmentation
  • Objects measurements
  • Calibrated objects measurements
  • Open source bioimage analysis ecosystem
