Paper Abstract

In this paper a review is first given of how confocal fluorescence microscopy in combination with digital image processing can be utilized to present three-dimensional images of microscopic specimens. Examples of different display techniques are given as well as data on typical computing speeds when using a SUN 386i workstation. In the latter part of the paper we discuss signal quality and factors limiting the thickness of the specimen volume that can be studied. Multiple-wavelength registration is also described, as well as a method for eliminating detector "cross-talk" when recording two fluorophores with overlapping emission spectra.
