CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Digital image processing, an integral part of microscopy, is increasingly
important to the fields of medicine and scientific research. This book provides
a unique one-stop reference on the theory, technique, and applications of this
Written by leading experts in the field, this book presents a unique practical
perspective of state-of-the-art microscope image processing and the development
of specialized algorithms. It contains in-depth analysis of methods coupled
with the results of specific real-world experiments. Microscope Image
Processing covers image digitization and display, object measurement and
classification, autofocusing, and structured illumination.
. Detailed descriptions of many leading-edge methods and algorithms
. In-depth analysis of the method and experimental results, taken from
. Emphasis on computational and algorithmic aspects of microscope image
. Advanced material on geometric, morphological, and wavelet image processing,
fluorescence, three-dimensional and time-lapse microscopy, microscope image
enhancement, MultiSpectral imaging, and image data management
This book is of interest to all scientists, engineers, clinicians,
post-graduate fellows, and graduate students working in the fields of biology,
medicine, chemistry, pharmacology, and other related fields. Anyone who uses
microscopes in their work and needs to understand the methodologies and
capabilities of the latest digital image processing techniques will find this
