Phase correlation is applied to the mosaicing of confocal scanning laser microscopy data. A large specimen (i.e., a murine heart) is cut into a number of individual sections with appropriate thickness. The sections are scanned horizontally and vertically to produce tiles of a 3D volume. Image processing based on phase correlation is used to rebuild the 3D volume and stitch the tiles together. Specifically, 2D registration of in-plane tiles and 3D alignment of optical slices within a given physical section are performed. The approach and performance are presented in this paper along with examples.
