Tutorial Details: Biological Image Processing and Restoration in Huygens

Date: Tuesday, April 19, 2005, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: Room 1-280 Nils Hasselmo Hall (NHH)
Instructor(s): Seema Jaisinghani,

Microscopic images are mostly collected as stacks (3D) and often with time lapses (the fourth dimension). Huygens is a comprehensive deconvolution package for 3D and 4D microscopic images.

This tutorial will introduce users to image processing algorithms for wide-field and confocal microscopes. It will demonstrate practical applications of Huygens in deconvolution, resolution and noise reduction for restoring images. Users will also be introduced to batch utilities in the tool, Huygens Scripting, available at the Institute to process large number of image datasets automatically.
