Experimental validation of 3D micro-flow estimation methods

The Idiap Research Institute invites applications for one internship position in Experimental validation of 3D micro-flow estimation methods

Pulsatile flow patterns play an important role during development of the vertebrate circulatory system, in particular, the heart. Optical sectioning microscopy offers the possibility of imaging sections within developing embryos or larvae of animal models such as the zebrafish at high speed but imaging flow, which is inherently 3D, remains challenging. Several techniques have been proposed that build upon the assumption of a repetitive flow to record rapid image series at increasing (static) depths and, possibly orientations. However, the characterization and practical validation of these techniques remains superficial.
