Digital images are a key tool in biomedical research, allowing fast, unbiased, and reproducible quantification. At the same time, improper manipulations of digital images (accidental or intentional) are a serious threat to the rigor and reproducibility of scientific research. Furthermore, high-profile cases of fraudulent image manipulation seriously damage the public trust in scientific research. This presentation will cover the nature of a digital image, the basic dos and don'ts of digital image manipulation, and some strategies to ensure the integrity of scientific imaging data.
