Description

Holovibes is a free software dedicated to the calculation of holograms in real-time. Input interferogram data can be grabbed from a digital camera or loaded from files recorded beforehand. Massive amounts of data can be handled robustly at high throughput, saved to disk, and visualized in real-time without any risk of frame dropping thanks to the use of several configurable input and output memory buffers.

Main features

Image acquisition from several digital cameras or from data files
Choice of hologram rendering method
Blazing-fast hologram rendering
Real-time computation of spectrograms
Hologram autofocus
Image and video post-processing
High throughput saving to disc of massive datasets
Batch recording and communication with remote instruments via GPIB

Requirements

A PC with at least 8 GB of RAM
Microsoft Windows 7/10 64-bit operating system
A NVidia graphics card (GeForce GTX 700+ series)
NVidia CUDA 9
A supported digital camera, or raw interferogram files

Use case examples

Holographic microscopy
Holographic OCT
Holographic vibrometry
Holographic angiography
Holographic plethysmography

Description

The software FishInspector provides automatic feature detections in images of zebrafish embryos (body size, eye size, pigmentation). It is Matlab-based and provided as a Windows executable (no matlab installation needed).

The recent version requires images of a lateral position. It is important that the position is precise since deviation may confound with feature annotations. Images from any source can be used. However, depending on the image properties parameters may have to be adjusted. Furthermore, images obtained with normal microscope and not using an automated position system with embryos in glass capillaries require conversion using a KNIME workflow (the workflow is available as well). As a result of the analysis the software provides JSON files that contain the coordinates of the features. Coordinates are provided for eye, fish contour, notochord , otoliths, yolk sac, pericard and swimbladder. Furthermore, pigment cells in the notochord area are detected. Additional features can be manually annotated. It is the aim of the software to provide the coordinates, which may then be analysed subsequently to identify and quantify changes in the morphology of zebrafish embryos.

Description

This is a classical workflow for spot detection or blob like structures (vesicules, melanosomes,...)

Step 1 Laplacian of Gaussian to enhance spots . Paraeters= radius, about the average spot radius

Step 2 Detect minima (using Find Maxima with light background option to get minima). Parameter : Tolerance to Noise: to be tested, hard to predict. About the height of the enhanced feautures peaks

Description

This plugin detects a minimum cost z-surface in a 3D volume. A z surface is a topographic map indicating the altitude z as a function of the position (x,y) in the image. The cost of the surface depends on pixel intensity the surface is going through. This plugin find the z-surface with the lowest intensity in an image.
