Paper Abstract

Specialized high speed volume rendering tools and image preprocessing methods required for the automated interactive microscope (AIM) are described. AIM will allow the biologist to perform 'closed loop' experiments, meaning tea the biologist will be able to view preliminary results to allow critical observations which facilitate the changing of the course of image data collection dynamically during the experiment. To facilitate this process, we are developing high-speed volume rendering tools utilizing 3-D texture mapping hardware. In addition, specific preprocessing methods are described which enable the seeing of 3-D structures in volume renderings of differential interference contrast (DIC) volume images. Without these methods, structures of interest, which are critically related to the experiment, would be obscured as though in a dense fog.
