Tutorial 1: Processing and analysing microscopy images with MATLAB


Dr Constantino Carlos Reyes Aldasoro

Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the City University London, Senior member of the IEEE. Chair of MIUA 2014. Author of “Biomedical Image Analysis Recipes in MATLAB: for Life Scientists and Engineers” (ISBN 978-1-118-65755-3, Wiley-Blackwell

In this tutorial, we will analyse some common aspects of biomedical images that have been acquired through different modes of microscopy. The tutorial will be divided in two parts (estimated duration time: 45 minutes each). The first will concentrate on the acquisition; some the advantages and disadvantages of the different modalities like Phase Contrast, Fluorescence, Immunohistochemistry and the processing of these modalities. In the second, we will apply different useful algorithms to analyse microscopy images, address common problems as well as introducing some important aspects of MATLAB, from using writing reports (or even books!) to generating publication-quality images with MATLAB (you will never need Illustrator again).

Dr Jasmina Lazic

Jasmina Lazic works on MathsWorks collaborations with academia in the UK, specialising in Data Science and Big Data.
