Paper Abstract

Reseachers seeking a histological determination of microscopic specimen morphology face the basic problem of analyzing three-dimensional microscopic specimens with two-dimensional imaging devices. This tedious task can be done at the microscope but reproduction of images in hard copy or digital form entails the loss of depth information. Quantitative measurements must generally be made on 2-D images. Several methods have been proposed and implemented to obtain and display 3-D images. In this paper we discuss an approach combining digital image processing techniques with stereo display techniques. This allows control of image quality and selection of different 3-D characteristics for display.
