Center-Extraction-Based Three Dimensional Nuclei Instance Segmentation of Fluorescence Microscopy Images

by   David Joon Ho, et al.

Fluorescence microscopy is an essential tool for the analysis of 3D subcellular structures in tissue. An important step in the characterization of tissue involves nuclei segmentation. In this paper, a two-stage method for segmentation of nuclei using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) is described. In particular, since creating labeled volumes manually for training purposes is not practical due to the size and complexity of the 3D data sets, the paper describes a method for generating synthetic microscopy volumes based on a spatially constrained cycle-consistent adversarial network. The proposed method is tested on multiple real microscopy data sets and outperforms other commonly used segmentation techniques.
