3D microscopy imaging is important for understanding complex biological assemblies. Computers and digital image acquisition systems have made possible the 3D visualization of images obtained from optical microscopes. This paper discussed a morphological approach for 3D blood cell visualization. The 3D plotted image is obtained from 2D image by combining 2D image space with the intensity value presented as third axis. 2D image detection techniques are commonly apply for blood cell analysis on image taken from microscopy or scanner sample which normally could be affected by noise. In order to enhance the detection of blood cell for 2D image and to obtain the clearest view of the blood cell, 3D image detection, which is more flexible and accurate, is proposed. This approach helps to obtain a clear image for disease analysis. A color image taken from microscopy or scanner has to gone through such image analysis using intensity, and edge operator to detect the blood cell disease, before 3D visualization can be done.
