We present a system of analyzing microscopy neuron image and archiving image data and analyzed results. The system focuses on processing 3D neuron image and extracting features about dendrites and spines. To extract dendrite and spine features, we apply morphology analysis to identify dendrites at first. Based on detected dendrites, we use region-growing to detect spines, which are short protrusions attached to the dendrite. The system has been shown to help researcher to reduce time in analyzing neuron images.
