The invention provides methods for displaying diagnostic results obtained from a tissue sample. In general, the invention assigns tissue-class probability values to discrete regions of a patient sample, and creates an overlay for displaying the results. The overlay facilitates display of the tissue ...

Jean Pierre Schott: Golden template comparison for rotated and/or scaled images. Cognex Corporation, Russ Weinzimmer, December 15, 1998: US05850466 (85 worldwide citation)

A method for Golden Template Comparison (GTC) is provided that can be used to efficiently perform flaw and defect detection on a two-dimensional test image that is at least rotated and/or scaled and/or sub-pixel translated. Run-time inspection speed and accuracy is substantially improved by retreivi ...
