This tutorial presents how to investigate an image, by extracting quantitative information. This tutorial is presented as an interactive study which is performed live, using Icy. The audience will participate and will propose interpretation of the problem, and of course, there will be a lot of traps! It covers a large number of topics: understanding the nature of noise in the image, understanding the interest of different representations of the images: the richness of 2D and 3D rendering in different modalities, the use of color maps and the practical use of histograms. In a second step, more advanced algorithms such as wavelets for spot detection and MHT for tracking of particles are also covered.
Students coming to this session will learn in a didactic and ludic way why the noise is so important in the images and what the good practices of the image analysis are. In this interactive session, they will discover that one needs to deeply understand his/her data before performing an analysis. Each step performed during this tutorial is reproducible since the software and the data are free and available for download. At the end of the session, the attendants can perform and extend their analysis directly on their laptops!
