A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11928819B2) discloses a method for approximating image data, involving obtaining initial image data from a sample, analyzing it to identify objects, accessing predefined stereotype elements, determining visual approximations for the objects, selecting appropriate stereotype elements, and forming instruction data for arranging the selected elements. The method includes checking probability values to match stereotype elements with objects and adjusting the selection if necessary. The instruction data can include parameters like identifier, position, size, orientation, and modifiers for the stereotypes, and can be transmitted for display in various formats like two-dimensional, three-dimensional, or temporal sequences.

The patent also covers additional features like selecting stereotype elements based on image characteristics, using machine learning for determining visual approximations, and improving instruction data by including more image data or adjusting parameter values. The method involves processing initial image data through techniques like filtering, geometric transformation, and deconvolution before analysis. The patent further includes claims for a tangible computer-readable medium with instructions for executing the method, a processing system with interfaces for display and storage, and a complete system comprising the processing system, a visual display unit, and an imaging system like microscopes for imaging samples. The visual display unit can be a variety of devices like virtual reality headsets, two-dimensional or three-dimensional displays, or augmented reality devices, suitable for showing the arranged stereotype elements based on the instruction data.
