A tool for fast automatic 3D-stitching of teravoxel-sized microscopy images
(BMC Bioinformatics 2012, 13:316)

TeraStitcher is a free tool that enables the stitching of Teravoxel-sized tiled microscopy images even on workstations with relatively limited resources of memory (<8 GB) and processing power. It exploits the knowledge of approximate tile positions and uses ad-hoc strategies and algorithms designed for such very large datasets. The produced images can be saved into a multiresolution representation to be efficiently visualized (e.g. Vaa3D-TeraFly) and processed.

Images for this research were produced by the Biophisics lab of LENS. The software was developed by the Department of Engineering of University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome (Italy).
