Image analysis and processing tool developments using the ImageJ software:

 Introduction:



Experimental work, either in biochemistry or biology, requires image treatments and analyses, in order to extract some pertinent visual and/or quantitative informations. These pages shows some developments made on automation of image analyses that have accompanied several independent research projects. The software developments presented here, were programmed with the multi platform image analysis and processing software of the National Institute of Health, "ImageJ". They are closely related to the development of the latter, particularly concerning its self-contained meta-language. This so called "macro" language, allows application programming without knowledge of the Java language, and whatever is the operating system. Several functionalities have been originally created here, and have been the subject of many contributions to ImageJ. They give to the "macros" library the functions needed to build upgradable software projects¬† [1].

logoij ImageJ (http://rsb.info.nih.gov/ij/) is a public domain Java image processing program inspired by NIH Image for the Macintosh. It runs, either as an online applet or as a downloadable application, on any computer with a Java 1.1 or later virtual machine. Downloadable distributions are available for Windows, Mac OS, Mac OS X and Linux. The author, Wayne Rasband (wayne@codon.nih.gov), is at the Research Services Branch, National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, Maryland, USA.
