SuperResolution-aided Recognition of Cytoskeletons in Scanning Probe Microscopy Images

  title={SuperResolution-aided Recognition of Cytoskeletons in Scanning Probe Microscopy Images},
  author={Sara Colantonio and Mario D’Acunto and Marco Righi and Ovidio Salvetti},
In this paper, we discuss the possibility to adopt SuperResolution (SR) methods as an important preparatory step to Pattern Recognition, so as to improve the accuracy of image content recognition and identification. Actually, SR mainly deals with the task of deriving a high-resolution image from one or multiple low resolution images of the same scene. The high-resolved image corresponds to a more precise image whose content is enriched with information hidden among the pixels of the original…

Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods

This study presents a substantially improved version of FashionDNA that boosts the accuracy of the matching model, and shows that the use of fashion-specific training data leads to superior performance of the segmentation model.



Probing Cytoskeletal Structures by Coupling Optical Superresolution and AFM Techniques for a Correlative Approach

The application of some of the most advanced fluorescence superresolution techniques, STED AFM and STORM AFM microscopy towards imaging of cytoskeletal structures, such as microtubule filaments, is described and shown.

Image upsampling via imposed edge statistics

A new method for upsampling images which is capable of generating sharp edges with reduced input-resolution grid-related artifacts, based on a statistical edge dependency relating certain edge features of two different resolutions, which is generically exhibited by real-world images.

This paper is the first attempt to determine the explicit limits of reconstruction-based algorithms, under both real and synthetic conditions, based on the perturbation theory of linear systems.

Example-Based Super-Resolution

This work built on another training-based super- resolution algorithm and developed a faster and simpler algorithm for one-pass super-resolution that requires only a nearest-neighbor search in the training set for a vector derived from each patch of local image data.

Results show that this technique can produce images whose error properties are equivalent to the initial approximation used, while their contour smoothness is both visually and quantitatively improved.

Compared with existing algorithms, KRR leads to a better generalization than simply storing the examples as has been done in existing example-based algorithms and results in much less noisy images.

Pattern recognition methods for thermal drift correction in Atomic Force Microscopy imaging

Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is a fundamental tool for the investigation of a wide range of mechanical properties on nanoscale due to the contact interaction between the AFM tip and the sample

This paper proposes a novel method for solving single-image super-resolution problems, given a low-resolution image as input, and recovers its high-resolution counterpart using a set of training examples, inspired by recent manifold teaming methods.

A methodological approach for combining super-resolution and pattern-recognition to image identification

A method derived from pattern recognition techniques for the recognition of artefacts and noise on set of images combined with super resolution algorithms is defined, opening the possibility to build a general framework for artefact recognition independently by the specific application where it is used.

Image Super-Resolution Via Sparse Representation

This paper presents a new approach to single-image superresolution, based upon sparse signal representation, which generates high-resolution images that are competitive or even superior in quality to images produced by other similar SR methods.
