Image J workshop

ImageJ, Fiji workshop


Dear Everyone,


The NeuroTechnology Studio at BWH will host a 3-day ImageJ workshop on December 2019. Detailed information is below.


Digital Image Analysis with ImageJ

December 4th – 6th 2019


This intensive 3-day workshop taught by Dr. Lai Ding, Senior Imaging Scientist of the NeuroTechnology Studio, introduces ImageJ, its basic functions, and its macro programming capabilities. Using real imaging projects, Dr. Ding will demonstrate common image analysis tasks such as basic image processing, segmentation, cell counting, and measurement. Macro writing will be covered to demonstrate how to automate a series of ImageJ commands, batch process massive datasets automatically, and store results as desired.


The workshop is broken down into three sessions. Participants can sign up for one or more sessions depending on their interest and experience. See the tentative schedule below.


If you are interested in this workshop but unable to join this time, please also let us know (email if you may be able to join the same workshop in the coming months. We MAY host another workshop in the near future if there is enough interest.

Program Schedule:

Session I (December 4th) ImageJ for beginners: basic ImageJ functions, measurement, filtering, background subtraction, cell counting, particle analysis, and ethics on image processing.


Session II (December 5th) Advanced ImageJ: morphology filter, thresholding methods, using ImageJ on FRAP, colocalization analysis and wound assay, working with plugins, designing image analysis protocols.


Session III (December 6th) ImageJ Macro Programming: introduce ImageJ macro programming language, record image process protocols as macro, batch process multiple images, user interactive features in macro, case study with sample codes. This session is aimed towards non-programmer; however, we do expect the participant to have a basic understanding of programming flow control syntax ("for" loop, "if-else" control). The participants are strongly encouraged to go through a brief tutorial on the ImageJ official website before the workshop.
