Abstract

An automatic tracker is developed, which is capable of tracking intra-cellular features in living cells from 3-D confocal image sequences corrupted by noise. The proposed approach takes a Poisson MAP-MRF classification as an initial stage to detect objects. These are then used to update the multiple target locations generated by 3D Poisson Kalman Particle filters (PKPF). A probabilistic nearest neighbour search strategy for object association is developed to produce improved prediction of target locations. Our approach is tested in real 3D confocal image sequences with challenging illumination conditions. Results show that our Poisson Kalman particle filter approach obtains very promising results and outperforms three other tracking approaches.
