Stephan Preibisch’s multiview deconvolution algorithm and the associated Fiji plugin was published at Nature Methods. The approach is relevant especially as a fusion strategy for SPIM data,
Check out the extensive supplement that provides the derivation of the algorithm (for the mathematically inclined) and extensive evaluation and benchmarking against other approaches. The GPU code was developed by Fernando Amat from Philipp Keller’s lab at the Janelia Farm.
The paper comes with an extensive collection of Supplementary Videos available at Nature Methods website.
The documentation for the Fiji plugin contains description of parameters and a ‘how to’ for hacks that didn’t yet make it into the plugins menu’s. It complements other SPIM related Fiji plugins such as bead based registration & Multiview fusion.
Finally, a Figure from the paper showing that multi-view deconvolution matters!
This is probably not the last answer to SPIM data deconvolution. We are looking forward to the input from the computer vision community to this hard problem.
