Light sheet microscopy allows rapid optical sectioning of whole chicken embryos during early development, visualizing cells through transgenic expression of a fluorescent cell membrane label. Low signal-to-noise ratios and large variability in intensity make segmentation of these images difficult, often resulting in discontinuous cell edges. We propose a multi-scale non-local means with shape prior (MS-NLM-SP) method for image enhancement, which takes into account cell-specific characteristics… CONTINUE READING
