Track fragmentation due to transient spreading. (a) A cell track may become fragmented when the cell spreads and escapes detection by the tracking algorithm; the algorithm assigns the cell to two separate tracks, and incorrectly estimates the number of touching events before phagocytosis. (b) Example of a spreading human polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMN) (indicated by arrow). PMN were followed over a time period of one hour using bright-field microscopy and images were taken at six frames per minute.
