In the realm of cell morphology analysis, microscopic imaging plays a vital role in unravelling the intricacies of cellular structures. Advancements in camera technology have paved the way for digital imaging, enabling researchers and scientists to explore the anatomy of cells with unprecedented detail. However, the challenge of pixelation artifacts has persistently plagued this domain.
In this article, we delve into the future of digital cell morphology and present a solution that allows users to explore cellular structures at 100X magnification without the disruptive presence of pixelation artifacts.
Understanding the Limitations of Microscopic Imaging
Pixelation artifacts have long been a bane in the world of microscopic imaging. These artifacts manifest as blocky or distorted pixel representations, compromising the integrity and clarity of the captured cellular images. Such degradation in image quality impedes accurate cell morphology analysis, limiting the potential for radical insights. Overcoming these limitations is crucial for unlocking the full potential of digital cell morphology.
The causes of the pixelation effect are due to factors related to the camera’s sensor and image processing algorithm used. The most common causes include:
- Low-resolution sensor: Fewer pixels in a low-resolution sensor result in pixelation at the time of magnifying
- Compression algorithm: Highly compressed images can remove fine image details and introduce pixelation artifacts.
- Digital zoom: Stretching to enlarge a portion of the image results in pixelation
- Low light: In low light conditions, the camera uses longer exposure to allow more light which can introduce random noises
- Camera setting and image processing algorithm: Some noise reduction algorithms may over-smooth an image and produce pixelation. Similarly, high sharpness in the camera’s setting may create new edges and pixelation.
