Image Forensics Scientific Misconduct


scientific misconduct and image forensics

Jerry Sedgewick provides image analysis for image integrity investigations. He can detect misleading and inauthentic images with proprietary methods, along with those recommended at the Office of Research Integrity (ORI). Jerry has looked at thousands of images, and has experience with electrophoretic samples (gels, blots, etc), confocal images, fluorescent samples, brightfield images and other scientific/microscope images. He can often find image information and metadata from scant source material.

Here is kudos from a major university:

"I'd like to thank you for all your help and for doing the analysis at short notice -- we could not have completed this inquiry without your input. I have told our Research Integrity Officer that you are the first person we must consult if we need to investigate issues with digital imaging and the future."

Imaging Consultant

Imaging Workflow Diagram

Jerry Sedgewick provides a range of services for instituting image integrity, consistency, efficiency, and quantitation-ready images. He can solve imaging problems others can't because he has deep knowledge in the entire imaging workflow, and not just one part of it. That includes:

checkmark Lighting of samples
checkmark Acquisition with Camera | Imaging equipment (micro, macro, fluorescent, brightfield, difficult to image materials)
checkmark Post-Processing
checkmark Quantitation (image analysis | stereology)
checkmark Data presentation

His services have assisted companies (see below) in development and marketing of imaging products, improved consistent imaging for identical contrast and color from several imaging stations, solved imaging problems due to glare and reflective surfaces, provided quantitative data from computer aided image analysis for companies that have subsequently received FDA approval, and led to dozens of novel quantitative methods for images from several disciplines (ophthamology, nueroscience, materials science, biology, dermatology, etc.).

Jerry trains onsite in the proper use of Photoshop, Illustrator, Bridge, GIMP, Image J, Image Pro Premiere and in Image Integrity. Training also for quantitation (image analysis, computer aided measurement, computer vision). Prevent future problems with scientific misconduct by properly training staff, students, and principle investigators.
