Digital Image Processing: Point and Local Operation Filters

Digital Image Processing: Point- and Local Operation Filters

Images taken with a light microscope are never true representations of the specimen; there are always sources of error that must be controlled. In this webinar, we’ll discuss what can be done to deal with sources of error, such as noise or low contrast. We also discuss the ethics of image processing—is image processing allowed, and, if yes, under what circumstances?

Presenters:

Heiko Gäthje, Senior Trainer, Olympus Training Academy
Takeo Ogama, Senior Product and Strategy Planner and Product Manager

Heiko Gäthje
Senior Trainer, Training Academy

Hello, my name is Heiko Gäthje. My expertise in widefield and confocal fluorescence microscopy and image processing of 3D data began when working as a biologist – I focused on neuronal development of insects and the structure of sialic acid binding neuronal proteins in mammals.

I joined Olympus in 2004 and I have been a microscopy trainer at the Olympus Academy since 2008, where I am responsible for the conception and introduction of digital learning tools. I also support and conduct microscopy training courses at the EMBL Heidelberg and the Zurich Winter School on Advanced Microscopy where I answer a lot of questions related to image processing and image analysis.

I’m Takeo Ogama, a senior product and strategy planner and product manager for microscope cameras at Olympus. I have eight years’ experience working in the research and development department on various products – including cameras – and eight years of product planning, marketing and management experience. Before joining Olympus, obtained my master’s degree in neutrino physics from Osaka University in Japan.
