This unit introduces the concepts of 3D image analysis and visualization as applied in cytometry. The author discusses the nature of 3D data sets and describes the techniques for visualization and analysis of 3D images. Discussions of noise removal, depth attenuation, and correction and segmentation are also included, as is a brief introduction to 3D analysis options and deconvolution prinicples. This commentary unit is a good way to begin an understanding of the application of 3D data sets.
