Automatic Image Analysis Workflows
Systematic processing of a large number of images with standardized methods is necessary in biology and medicine to obtain statistically reliable data. Defined workflows and database structures with standardized interfaces between different programs meet demands with a minimum of manual management. Current processing status, overviews and statistics can be retrieved anytime. External programs can be integrated, alternative paths taken and stages of processing that require an expert completed. Parallel processing cuts processing time. Stages of interactive processing can be successively executed for several data sets without waiting.
