Neuron Tracing in microscopy volume imaging data can be challenging and laborious. The Automatic Neuron Tracing module allows analysis of even complex structural networks in both 2D or 3D multichannel image sets of virtually any size (tested with 100s of GBs). The integration of two modern, published methods and state-of-the-art algorithms offers an easy-to-use approach with full flexibility and interactivity at all steps.
The novel software architecture and algorithms of the arivis Scientific Image Analysis Platform deliver top performance in tracing applications for various imaging modalities in light microscopy. Combined with our best-in-class Machine Learning segmentation, automatic tracing and trace editing of multidimensional data sets becomes an easy task, without the need to be an expert in bioinformatics. ZEISS arivis Pro (formerly Vision4D) allows you to create expert results and meaningful output data for any kind of tracing data sets. The new semi-automatic trace editing tool creates a neuron trace or branch interactively by drawing in the viewer with automatic detection of the path. And the unique ZEISS arivis Pro VR (formerly VisionVR) virtual reality solution gives you superior productivity when proofreading and correcting your automatically created results.
Several parameters and state-of-the-art algorithms allow fast and reproducible tracing:
