Domain Adaptive Segmentation in Volume Electron Microscopy Imaging

In the last years, automated segmentation has become a necessary tool for volume electron microscopy (EM) imaging. So far, the best performing techniques have been largely based on fully supervised encoder-decoder CNNs, requiring a substantial amount …

Convolutional Neural Network Pruning to Accelerate Membrane Segmentation in Electron Microscopy

Biological membranes are one of the most basic structures and regions of interest in cell biology. In the study of membranes, segment extraction is a well-known and difficult problem because of impeding noise, directional and thickness variability, …

Accurate detection of dysmorphic nuclei using dynamic programming and supervised classification

A vast array of pathologies is typified by the presence of nuclei with an abnormal morphology. Dysmorphic nuclear phenotypes feature dramatic size changes or foldings, but also entail much subtler deviations such as nuclear protrusions called blebs. …

Superpixel quality in microscopy images: the impact of noise & denoising

Microscopy is a valuable imaging tool in various biomedical research areas. Recent developments have made high resolution acquisition possible within a relatively short time. State-of-the-art imaging equipment such as serial block-face electron …

Biological image analysis

In biological research images are extensively used to monitor growth, dynamics and changes in biological specimen, such as cells or plants. Many of these images are used solely for observation or are manually annotated by an expert. In this …
