Cutting confocal stacks at various depths relative to surface signal

Project description

Surfcut for Python & Matlab is based on Surfcut for ImageJ

Paper: Erguvan, O., Louveaux, M., Hamant, O., Verger, S. (2019) ImageJ SurfCut: a user-friendly pipeline for high-throughput extraction of cell contours from 3D image stacks. BMC Biology, 17:38.

Software: Verger Stéphane. (2019, April 10). sverger/SurfCut: SurfCut (Version v1.1.0). Zenodo.

Example Data: Erguvan Özer, & Verger Stéphane. (2019). Dataset of confocal microscopy stacks from plant samples - ImageJ SurfCut: a user-friendly, high-throughput pipeline for extracting cell contours from 3D confocal stacks [Data set]. Zenodo.

Headless Mode

If you are a Python user, this package is available on pip:

pip install surfcut

To run from the command line:

surfcut <image name>.tif

This version implements Surfcut exactly as in the original paper.

A version including morphological operations (erode and dilate) is available for surfaces which are very curved, but is much slower than the original approach.

surfcut <image name>.tif -m

For more options:

surfcut --help
