Abstract
The authors present a Hough transform based image segmentation algorithm for automated detection, counting, and measurement of particles in two- and three-dimensional microscopic digital image data sets. The algorithm has proven to be both sensitive and specific for the particles of interest, even in the presence of noise and blurring. We apply the algorithm to the problem of automated compilation of population statistics on the size and mass of zymogen granules in pancreatic acinar cells. We present results describing the performance of the algorithm on digital phantoms, and image data from conventional fluorescence and confocal microscopes.
