Researchers are improving the performance of technologies ranging from medical CT scanners to digital cameras using a system of models to extract specific information from huge collections of data and then reconstructing images like a jigsaw puzzle. The new approach is called model-based iterative reconstruction, or MBIR.
The judges dove Down Under to select an Australian video of freshwater rotifers as First Prize winner in the 2012 Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition, a forum for showcasing microscope photos and movies of life science subjects.
Media Cybernetics is announced the upcoming availability of Image-Pro Premier, a new image processing and analysis software package that incorporates more than 25 years of user input.
Olympus has launched the cellSens 1.5 software platform, the latest in its line of applications for capturing and analyzing microscope images. cellSens 1.5 features Windows 7 64-bit operation. It fully integrates all the imaging and analysis capabilities of such microscopes as the newly introduced fully motorized Olympus BX63 microscope.
When paired with the Molecular Imager Gel Doc XR+ or ChemiDoc XRS+ systems, both from Bio-Rad, the new Image Lab software provides a fully automated image capture and analysis system that delivers high quality images.
Carestream Molecular Imaging announced availability of a new Bone Density Software application that performs bone density analysis of small animals in vivo and measures mineral density of specimens in vitro . The software can expedite calculation and reporting for numerous applications ranging from the study of diseases of the bone such as arthritis and osteoporosis to the efficacy of drugs and other treatment options that may affect bone mineral and other densities.
Media Cybernetics offers Image-Pro Plus Version 7.0, image processing and analysis software package. Users of Image-Pro Plus v.7.0 now have the option to add the Live Tiling and EDF module that allows acquisition and tiling of large images and in-focus composite images live—without an automated microscope stage or focus drive.
