Methods for monitoring cellular motion and function
Padfield D., Rittscher J., Roysam B.
Automated cell phase analysis of live cells over extended time periods requires both novel assays and automated image analysis algorithms. We approach the tracking problem as a spatio-temporal volume segmentation problem, where the 2D slices are stacked into a volume with time as the z dimension. This extended abstract gives an overview of our approach and outlines how a robust tracking system for high-throughput screening can be designed. © 2008 IEEE.
