X-ray tomography is now a versatile technique which can quickly and simply provide 3D images of the actual microstructure 11,12 especially in the case of highly porous materials. 13–16 The images obtained by this technique can now be processed and analysed through 3D image analysis routines which have been recently developed and implemented.
A plugin for bone image analysis in ImageJ. BoneJ provides free, open source tools for trabecular geometry and whole bone shape analysis. It calculates several trabecular, cross-sectional and particulate parameters in a convenient format. Java technology allows BoneJ to run on commodity computers, independent of scanner devices, fully utilising hardware resources. ImageJ’s plugin infrastructure provides a flexible working environment that can be tailored to diverse experimental setups. BoneJ is a working program and a starting point for further development, which will be directed by users’ requests and the emergence of new techniques.
Serves for the high-throughput analysis of root system architecture. GiA Roots estimates root system architecture (RSA) traits from a large number of root system images and identify roots from the background, i.e., segmenting the image. It includes: an optional userassisted processing of images, scale calibration, trait selection, image segmentation, and trait measurement.
Permits users to conduct 3D modeling, image processing and measurement magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), positron-emission tomography (PET), microscopy, scientific, and industrial imaging. 3D-DOCTOR constructs 3D surface models and volume rendering from 2D cross-section images in real time. It enables the alignment of misaligned slices in an automatic or semi-automatic manner with image alignment functions.
Allows users to visualize, manipulate, and understand data from imaging modalities such as computed tomography, microscopy or Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Amira 3D Software for Life Sciences provides features to import and process 2D and 3D images data, visualization techniques and tools for visual analysis. Users can also create and share presentations. The base product can be customized by adding functional extensions to fit special needs in different application areas.
