Deconvolution of 3D Image Stacks

Images taken with a light microscope are never true representations of the specimen. Error sources, which have to be controlled, are sample preparation and staining protocols as well as optical aberrations and limitations of microscope and digital camera.

To turn the microscopic image into a close representation of the specimen ground truth restoration algorithms are in use. In this presentation, we will focus on restoration of three-dimensional datasets, a process called deconvolution. The mathematics behind these methods will not be covered. Rather, the aim is to provide a brief, intuitive introduction that allows us to assess the possible uses of these filters in a specific application. For this reason, we will demonstrate these filters live on selected example images.
