    The new course is spread over 3 days (10am-4pm) and offers an introduction to image analysis with the free software ImageJ / Fiji.

    It is a mixture of lectures, demos, hands on sessions and exercises.

    Day 1 Understanding digital images. Bit depth, brightness, colours & pixels. ImageJ / Fiji basics, getting to grips with the software. Image presentation (generating figures for publication). ROIs and simple measurements.

    Day 2 Image analysis. Pre-processing (Filters, background), thresholding for feature identification and counting. Alterntaive segmentation strategies. 2D 3D and timeseries. Identifying double / triple stained cells, (and why this isn't colocalisation).

    Day 3 ImageJ / Fiji macros. Recording and writing custom scripts to automate image analysis.

    The course is presented via zoom. You must have a PC with Fiji and Zoom installed.

    The course is designed as a single course. You should attend all 3 days. However, if you have attended previous IA courses at ICH there will be a stand alone Macros course coming soon.
