Summary of "A Versatile Macro-Based Neurohistological Image Analysis Suite for ImageJ Focused on Automated and Standardized User Interaction and Reproducible Data Output."

In recent decades, the advent of advanced microscopy techniques, including high resolution digital imaging, multi-dimensional acquisition, and multiple fluorescence channel exposure, as well as the availability of inexpensive terabyte-capacity digital storage, has enabled neuroscience research laboratories to engage in high-throughput quantitative image analysis experiments involving numerous chemical markers and experimental conditions covering multiple brain regions and composed of hundreds of micrographs. Analyzing and processing these large data sets presents challenges in ensuring precision and reproducibility under demanding time and training constraints.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

A technique encompassing morphometry, densitometry, neural networks, and expert systems that has numerous clinical and research applications and is particularly useful in anatomic pathology for the study of malignant lesions. The most common current application of image cytometry is for DNA analysis, followed by quantitation of immunohistochemical staining.

A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.

Analysis based on the mathematical function first formulated by Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Fourier in 1807. The function, known as the Fourier transform, describes the sinusoidal pattern of any fluctuating pattern in the physical world in terms of its amplitude and its phase. It has broad applications in biomedicine, e.g., analysis of the x-ray crystallography data pivotal in identifying the double helical nature of DNA and in analysis of other molecules, including viruses, and the modified back-projection algorithm universally used in computerized tomography imaging, etc. (From Segen, The Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

The production of an image obtained by cameras that detect the radioactive emissions of an injected radionuclide as it has distributed differentially throughout tissues in the body. The image obtained from a moving detector is called a scan, while the image obtained from a stationary camera device is called a scintiphotograph.
