Short Description

Automatic registration in 2D or 3D based on detection or binary mask.

Documentation

Please note that you should use java 8 to use this plugin (simply upgrade you java installation, nothing to be done from ICY itself). Check the Icy console message after installation to see your java version.

Also look to EC-CLEM plugin

An example of Visual Protocol using this plugin is given here

Tutorials:

Datasets and tutorial are available for some example (real data or synthetic data). Each table below presents the input data: source (likely elecron microscopy data) and target (likely light microscopy) in first raw. Second raw is the source image positionned in target, followed by target image positionned on source. Please do not reuse without permission.

You need to first have identified ROI on both images, only their center will be considered.
The plugin Spot detector is a good choice here,
just make sure to have activated Export to Roi as output;
or eC-CLEM tool ConvertBinaryToPointRoi
IMPORTANT: Check your metadata first as it will be used by MyAutoFinder.

    • About the same content in both n-D images :
      This option will try to fit the full content of the image, assuming you have similar detections
    • Find Small Part in Bigger View (reverse or not) :
      The purpose here is to find an image position (typically EM)
      on a larger field of view (typically LM). The prealignment will be different
    • Max Error in microns: :
      A pointshould have a distance to its closest matching point below this value
      in order not to be considered as an outlier. Increase if no transformation was found.
      Rule of Thumb: about 10 pixels
    • Percentage of target point to keep: :
      This is the minimum percentage of point that have to match: 90% means almost no outliers
      50% or less if the number of detection are very different. 70% is usually a good trade off

Here is some example of semi automatic registration where lines in common are drawn to help the registration.

 

A wizard is also available
