Deconvolution has proven to be a powerful new tool for performing high-
resolution multi-dimensional imaging of biological specimens.  It is
used for increasing the sensitivity and improving the resolution of
standard widefield microscopes and for improving the resolving
capabilities of confocal systems.  Attendees of this live, no-cost
webinar will learn about the latest technology for performing
deconvolution on a variety of microscope images and understand better
the relative strengths and weaknesses of several popular algorithms.
Bring your questions to this live, interactive web-based seminar.

- What is deconvolution and how does it work?
- Discussion on empirical vs. derived point-spread functions
- Uses in fluorescence and brightfield modalities
- Difference from confocal imaging
- How do I choose one over the other?
- Pro and cons- where deconvolution works and where it doesn't
- Challenges and advice
- A few before/after examples using Image Pro 3D Constructor

Upcoming Webinar:  "3D Imaging: Issues to Consider for Biological
Microscopy" (invitations will be sent separately).

Sponsored by Media Cybernetics (Image Pro and AutoQuant software) and
QImaging (precision CCD cameras)
