- Certain patterns are invisible to the eye

Optical Spectroscopy

- Absorbance
- Fluorescence
- Transmittance
- Emission

- Spectroscopy analyzes the interaction between optical radiation and a sample (as a function of λ)
- Provides compositional and structural information

Directions of optical Methods

Spectroscopy

Imaging

Currently there are two “directions” in optical analysis of an object

A

Camera

B

Spectrometer

Provides spatial information

Provides spectral information

Reveals morphological features

No information about structure or composition / no spectral analysis

Spectrum reveals composition and structure

No information about spatial distribution

- Acquisition of spatially coregistered images at different wavelengths
- The maximum number of components that can be distinguished equals the number of spectral bands
- The accuracy of spectral unmixing increases with the number of bands

Multispectral Imaging Modalities

- Camera + Filter Wheel
- Bayer Pattern
- Cameras + Prism
- Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography
- etc.

Let’s find those apples

- Multispectral imaging alone is only one side of the medal
- Appropriate data analysis techniques are required to extract information from the measurements

Unmixing Methods

- Multispectral Imaging
- Unmixing Methods
- Exercise: Implementation

The Unmixing Problem

Unmixing

- Finding the sources that constitute the measurements
- For multispectral imaging this means separating image components of different, overlapping spectra
- Unmixing is a general problem in (multivariate) data analysis

Multifluorescence Microscopy

- Disjoint spectra can be separated by bandpass filtering
- Overlapping emission spectra create crosstalk

Autofluorescence

I

λ

- Autofluorescence exhibits a broadband spectrum
- Only mixed observations of the components can be measured
- Post-processing to unmix them

Forward Modeling

What constitutes a multispectral measurement at a certain point and wavelength?

Principle of superposition: Sum of individual component emission

A component‘s emission over different wavelengths λ is denoted by its spectrum, its spatial distribution is still to be defined.

Setting up a simple forward problem (1)

- Two fluorochromes on a homogeneous background
- Note: We define images as row vectors of length n
- All components are merged in the (n x k) source matrix O

n: Number of image pixelsk: Number of spectral components

Setting up a simple forward problem (2)

Relative Absorption [%]

- Defining the emission spectra for all components at the measurement points
- Combining them into the (k x m) spectral matrix

Wavelength [nm]

k: Number of spectral components

m: Number of multispectral measurements

m ≥ k

Setting up a simple forward problem (3)

Relative Absorption [%]

- Two fluorochromes on a homogeneous background
- Heavily overlapping spectra
- 25 equidistant measurements under ideal conditions

Wavelength [nm]

Linear Regression: Spectral Fitting

- Reconstructing O
- System generally overdetermined: No direct inverse S-1
- Generalized inverse: Moore-Penrose PseudoinvereS+
- Spectral Fitting: Finding the components that best explain the measurements given the spectra
- Minimizing the error:

Spectral Fitting

- Orthogonality principle: optimal estimation (in a least squares sense) is orthogonal to observation space

Spectral Fitting

Spectral Fitting

- Given full spectral information (i.e. about all source components) the data can be unmixed

Spectral Fitting

Fast, easy and computationally stable

Known order and number of unmixed components

Quantitative

Requires complete spectral information

Crucially depends on accuracy of spectra (systematic errors)

Suitable for detection and localization of known compositions

Principal Component Analysis

- Blind source separation (BSS) technique
- Requires no a priori spectral information
- Estimates both O and S from M
- Assumption:Sources are uncorrelated, while mixed measurements are not

Principal Component Analysis

- Unmixing by decorrelation: Orthogonal linear transformation
- Transforms the data into a space spanned by the orthogonal PCs
- Maximum variance along first PC, maximum remaining variance along second PC, etc.

Unmixing multispectral data with PCA

- 25 multispectral measurements are correlated
- Their entire variance can (ideally) be expressed by only 3 PCs Dimension reduction
- Those 3 PCs are the unmixed sources
- Note that matrix orientations may vary between different implementations

Computing PCA

Method 1 (preferred for computational reasons)

- Subtract mean from multispectral observations
- Covariance Matrix:
- DiagonalizingCM: Eigenvalue Decomposition
- Eigenvectors of CM are the principal components, roots of the eigenvalues are the singular values
- Projecting Monto the PCs:

Computing PCA with the SVD

Method 2 (not suitable for implementation)

- Subtract mean from multispectral observations
- Singular Value Decomposition: M = UΣVT
- Uis a (m x m) matrix of orthonormal (uncorrelated!) vectors
- Projecting Monto those decorrelates the measurements
- Singular values in Σdenote how much variance is explained by the respective PC

PCA does more than just unmix

Mixing

S

(UT)-1 = U ≈ S

PCA

Multispectral data space

Original data space

- Uis a (non-quantitative) approximation of the PCs spectra
- These can be used to verify a components identity
- Σis the singular value matrixRelatively small singular values indicate irrelevant components

UT

Principal Component Analysis (PCA)

Needs no a priori spectral information

Also reconstructs spectral properties

Significance measurement through singular values

Unknown order and number of components

Generally not quantitative

Crucially depends on uncorrelatedness of the sources

Suitable for many compounds and identification of unknown components

Advanced Blind Source Separation

- Independent Component Analysis (ICA): assumes statistically independent source components, which is a stronger condition than PCA’s orthogonality
- Non-negative Matrix Factorization (NNMF): constraint that all elements must be positive
- Commonly computed by iterative optimization of cost functions, gradient descent, etc.

Independent Component Analysis

- Assumes and requires independent sources:
- Independence is stronger than uncorrelatedness

Independent Component Analysis

- Central limit theorem: Sum of non-gaussian variables is more gaussian than the individual variables
- Kurtosis measures non-gaussianity:
- Maximize kurtosis to find IC
- Reconstruction:

Practical Considerations

- Noise
- Artifacts (from reconstruction, reflections, measurement,…)
- Systematic errors (spectra, laser tuning, illumination,…)
- Unknown and unwanted components

Forward Problem / Mixing

- Define at least 3 non-constant images representing the original components
- Plot them and store them in the matrix O
- Define an emission spectrum for every component at an appropriate number of measurment points
- Plot them and store them in the matrix S
- Calculate the measurement matrix as M = OS (and save everything)

Forward Problem / Mixing

Useful MatLab functions

- Has M and S as input variables
- Calculates the pseudoinverse S+
- Returns the unmixing Rpinv
- Test it on your data

Spectral Fitting

Useful MatLab functions

- Functions: function [out] = name([input])
- Regular matrix inverse: y = inv(x)

Principal Component Analysis

- Create an m-file and write a function that
- Has M as an input variable
- Subtracts the mean from the measurements in M
- Computes the covariance matrix CM
- Performs an eigenvalue decomposition on CM
- Sorts the eigenvalues (and corresponding vectors) by size
- Projects M onto the eigenvectors
- Returns the projected unmixing, the principal components and their loadings

Principal Component Analysis

Useful MatLab functions

- Mean: y = mean(x)
- Eigenvalue Decomposition: [e_vec e_val] = eig(X)

Testing your code

- Try fitting and PCA on your mixed data
- Try adding different types and amounts of noise to M(e.g. using imnoise)
- Simulate systematic errors in your spectra (noise, changing values, offset,…)

Independent Component Analysis (voluntary)

- You can download the FastICAMatLabcode from http://research.ics.tkk.fi/ica/fastica/
- Type doc fastica for function description
- Use the fasticafunction to unmix your simulated data
- Compare the result to PCA. What are advantages and disadvantages of ICA?
