Abstract

Processing and analysis of image data require very different methods than those used in flow cytometry. Image processing is used to correct inaccuracies in an image and make it easier to interpret, whereas image analysis is used to extract quantitative data about a specimen. This unit provides an overview of image processing methods. Keywords: image processing; image analysis; overview Processing and analysis of image data require very different methods than those used in flow cytometry
