|Search the PAX-it Image Database for Measurement and Image Analysis Results
PAX-it now allows users to take measurements from basic measurement, live measurement or your image analysis routines and store them in the PAX-it image database. This allows searches through your PAX-it collection that are based on measurement data, as well as standard ID Tag information and image attributes.
The search criteria can be constructed around simple measurements or even results from image analysis routines. The ability to search based on measurement data and image analysis results is included in the standard modules for PAX-it measurements, at no extra charge.
With just a few clicks, you can find all the images in your database that match your criteria. Powerful features in the database search include:
- Searching on the results while performing calculations on two measurements (find all images where measurement1 + measurements2 > 23mm)
- Combining measurement results with the PAX-it imaging filing system (find all images in folders 50-100 where measurement1 > 23mm)
- Searching on statistical results from the measurements (find all images where the average measurement is > 34mm)
- Searching based on image analysis results combined within a certain date range (find all images that have a total detected object area percent greater than 75% that were taken after 10/01/05).
This feature adds a whole new dimension to searching. Here are just a few examples of searches that can be constructed:
For Welding applications:
“All cross sections of Part ABC after Jan1, 2005 where throat depth is less than 3mm.”
For Life Science applications:
“All Masson stained liver images where cirrhotic portal fibrosis reaches greater than 20% of the image sample area.”
“All uncompressed images of Material X from Supplier Y, taken between March and June 2005, where grainsize is greater than 5.5.”
For Quality Control:
“All Plating Thickness images from Part XYZ where the average thickness of the Outer Brass layer is less than 50uM <OR> the average thickness of Layer2 is greater than 40um”.
“All images from rape cases between 1999 and 2003 where the sperm morphology yielded head length greater than 1.7 times the head width.”
You may also combine this with the power of PAX-it’s report generation and tie the results into Microsoft Excel templated reports. The result is a powerful report that can help you track your measurements and spot trends in your data.
For example, a report template can be constructed to graph all line measurements for a part, taken over a 6 month time period. The user would search for the specifics (Part ABC ‘s Throat Depth measurement over the last 6 months, for example) and the results would be graphed out automatically as part of a trend analysis report. The report can easily be archived back into your PAX-it cabinets and folders, and into the PAX-it database, along with the images.
Let us show you how these capabilities, along with other great PAX-it features, can give you the power you need to easily archive, measure, and report your lab’s image-based data.
