Although three-dimensional (3-D) reconstructions of the surfaces of live embyos are vital to understanding embryo development, morphogenetic tissue movements and other factors have prevented the automation of this task. Here, we report an integrated set of software algorithms that overcome these challenges, making it possible to completely automate the(More)
A new robotic microscope system, called the Frogatron 3000, was developed to collect time-lapse images from arbitrary viewing angles over the surface of live embryos. Embryos are mounted at the center of a horizontal, fluid-filled, cylindrical glass chamber around which a camera with special optics traverses. To hold them at the center of the chamber and(More)
The procedure required for registering a surgical navigation system prior to use in a surgical procedure is conventionally a time-consuming manual process that is prone to human errors and must be repeated as necessary through the course of a procedure. The conventional procedure becomes even more time consuming when intra-operative 3D imaging such as the(More)
