  • CONTEXT-BASED SEPARATION OF CELL CLUSTERS FOR THE AUTOMATIC BIOCOMPATIBILITY TESTING OF IMPLANT MATERIALS
    S Buhl, B Neumann, S C Schafer    Download Full Text

    This paper presents a new method to separate cells on microscopic surfaces joined together in cell clusters into individual cells. Important features of this method are that the remaining object geometry is preserved and few contour points are required for finding joints between neighboring cells. There are alternative methods such as morphological operations or the watershed transformation bas...

    Bacterial infections of bones remain a serious complication of endoprosthetic surgery. These infections are difficult to treat, because many bacterial species form biofilms on implants, which are relatively resistant towards antibiotics. Bacterial biofilms elicit a progressive local inflammatory response, resulting in tissue damage and bone degradation. In the majority of patients, replacement ...
