Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The application of optical flow image processing methods in the quantification of cell migration on substrates is reported here. By extracting pixel-based displacement vectors from time-lapse microscopy, this technique allows the accurate and objective analysis of the cell motility process.
