Abstract

In this paper we introduce our preliminary research results for segmentation and labeling of 3-dimensional microscopy neuron image, We segment each of stacked 2-dimensional image slices using a Partial Differential Equation (PDE) based algorithm and project previous slice segmentation result to the next slide as an initialization condition. Then we label neurons using an efficient connected component labeling algorithm. We show sample results obtained from real neuron image data.
