Physical imaging methods used for the examination of biological, medical, and materials science probes produce more and more spatial images of structures. The use of computer tomography for non-destructive quality control is just one example.
Besides visualisation and processing (transforming) of these images, there is a growing interest in an analysis of spatial image data. The goal of this analysis is to determine geometric and topological characteristics of microstructures. Examples are volume density and surface density. Moreover, spatial objects are isolated and their characteristics determined.
These and further functions for the analysis of 3-D-images are available in the system a4iL. A variety of image processing routines and a visualization are imbedded into a professional software system.
