Microscope images are a complex dataset consisting of multiple structures and intensities spread across various channels. Hence, visualizing and analyzing this data becomes paramount.

Imaris helps in visualizing all standard microscope formats. It can also be used to create iso-surfaces, perform statistical analysis based on the pixel intensities and perform co-localization (identifying pixels and entities that are present in more than one channel.) In addition to these operations, it has other modules to perform specialized functions like movie generation, etc.
