Extensive mapping of neuronal connections in the central nervous system requires high-throughput µm-scale imaging of large volumes. In recent years, different approaches have been developed to overcome the limitations due to tissue light scattering. These methods are generally developed to improve the performance of a specific imaging modality, thus(More)
OBJECTIVE Systemic lupus erythematosus is a connective tissue disease affecting multiple organ systems and characterised by a chronic inflammatory process. It is considered a very serious sickness, further to be classified as an invalidating chronic disease. The recommended method for its detection is the indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) based on Crithidia(More)
INTRODUCTION In recent years, there has been an increased demand for computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) tools to support clinicians in the field of indirect immunofluorescence. To this aim, academic and industrial research is focusing on detecting antinuclear, anti-neutrophil, and anti-double-stranded (anti-dsDNA) antibodies. Within this framework, we present a(More)
Autoimmune diseases are very serious and also invalidating illnesses. The benchmark procedure for their diagnosis is the indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) assay performed on the HEp-2 substrate. Medical doctors first determine the fluorescence intensity exhibited by HEp-2 wells and then report the staining pattern. Despite its pivotal role, IIF is affected(More)
