TissueStack Features - 2

TissueStack will now also display appropriate meta-data from both microscopy (histology) and MRI fields along with datasets. This feature displays the common co-ordinate data between two datasets that are used to link them in the "world space". Here, world space refers to a millimetric co-ordinate reference frame in which all datasets must reside.

Shown below are the real world (mm) co-ordinates for both the whole volume (bounding box) and the current point of interest. The current scale being used to view the dataset, the value of the current point of interest (in gray) and the scale of the data overlaid on the main viewing pane.

This pane will display more meta-data from the datasets as it becomes available, specifically data from the XML RIF-CS data feed will also be displayed.

TissueStack Features - 1

The original description of TissueStack called for a number of features the first of these was for the interactive combined or adjacent display of multi-scale MRI, histology, nomenclature data and corresponding project metadata.

With recent developments we can now announce that we have met this goal, the current release of TissueStack now allows you to display 2 datasets beside each other. These datasets can be of any modality as the only input requirement is a file in either NiFTI or MINC format. Nomenclature and metadata (co-ordinates, colormaps) are displayed in the left pane. The most important of this the co-ordinate system as it is by this common reference frame that images are linked.

An example screenshot of this is shown below. In this case a restacked histology is shown in the top panel and the corresponding MRI from the same animal is shown in the bottom panel
