Abstract

Many applications in image cytometry require storage and retrieval of a large number of high-resolution color video images. For this purpose, a microprocessor-controlled image cytometry database system has been developed which employs optical memory disk recording and graphics overlay capabilities. The image data base is recorded on optical disk, while associated descriptors are stored in the computer memory in a relational data base. The system has been designed for several applications, some of which require real-time access of individual images. The modular structure of the system permits various experimental configurations as well as integration into an image cytometry apparatus.
