Aim: The aim of the project is the research in the field of computer analysis of microscopic images, in the field of automation of the acquisition process and on-line image analysis and application of gained knowledge in praxis. The proposal assumes both continuation of running research of cell nucleus structure with clinical applications in diagnostics and prevention of leukemias and other cancer diseases as well as extension of the research into other application areas of computer analysis of microscopic images, biomedical as well as industrial. Content: Especially the algorithms of image preprocessing and segmentation will be studied with emphasis on deconvolution of 3D images, mathematical morphology operations and 3D image reconstruction from a series of 2D image slices. An intensive research will be led also in the area of parallel image analysis algorithms and parallelization of selected algorithms on multi-processor workstations using the equipment of Supercomputing centre MU.
The aim of the project is the research in the field of computer analysis of microscopic images, in the field of automation of the acquisition process and on-line image analysis and application of gained knowledge in praxis.
