3D Objects Counter

    TODO component: {"content"=>"sc.fiji:3D\\_Objects\\_Counter"}

    What does it do ?

    This plugin:

    • counts the number of 3D objects in a stack.
    • quantifies for each found object the following parameters:
      • Integrated density;
      • Mean of the gray values;
      • Standard deviation of the gray values;
      • Minimum gray value;
      • Maximum gray value;
      • Median of the gray values;
      • Mean distance from the geometrical centre of the object to surface;
      • Standard deviation of the distance to surface;
      • Median distance to surface;
      • Centroid;
      • Centre of mass;
      • Bounding box.
    • generates results representations such as:
      • Objects’ map;
      • Surface voxels’ map;
      • Centroids’ map;
      • Centres of masses’ map.

    As ImageJ’s “Analyze Particles” function, 3D-OC also has a “redirect to” option, allowing one image to be taken as a mask to quantify intensity related parameters on a second image.
