Annotating 3D images in napari

Posted by , on 30 March 2023

This blog post revolves around generating ground truth in 3D images for segmentation. Therefore, we will define what ground truth is and how we can generate it using napari in a time-efficient way. We will also learn about difficulties of annotating alone or in groups and address possible solutions for both. Challenges of image segmentation

Rescaling images and pixel (an)isotropy

Posted by , on 2 March 2023

This blog post shows the importance of rescaling 3D image data and what anisotropy of pixels/voxels has to do with it. We will see which different options exist to rescale an image as well as their advantages and limitations. We will also apply a commonly used segmentation algorithm, Voronoi-Otsu-Labeling, on the original and the rescaled

VollSeg and its extension Napari plugins

Posted by , on 15 January 2023

In this article we present the Napari plugin VollSeg and its ongoing extension plugins that we are creating as a part of the CZI grant awarded successively to the non-profit company KapoorLabs, Paris. VollSeg is a Napari plugin for performing semantic, instance segmentation and denoising using the seed pooling approach that requires StarDist and either

Explorative image data science with napari

Posted by , on 23 May 2022

When analysing microscopy image data of biological systems, a major bottleneck is to identify image-based features that describe the phenotype we observe. For example when characterising phenotypes of nuclei in 2D images, often questions come up such as “Shall we use circularity, solidity, extend, elongation, aspect radio, roundness or Feret’s diameter to describe the shape
