Introduction & Overview

Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM, Science, 305(5686):1007-9) allows in toto imaging of large specimens by acquiring image stacks from multiple angles. However, to realize the full potential of these acquisitions the data needs to be reconstructed. This project implements several algorithms for the registration and fusion of multi-angle SPIM acquisitions.


The easiest is to get the SPIM Reconstruction as part of Fiji.

See also the SPIM Registration page on the ImageJ wiki.

Please note that the SPIM reconstruction plugin available through Fiji, is based on publications. If you use it successfully for your research please be so kind to cite our work:
