Herein, we present a new algorithm for real-time analysis of 3D single molecule localization microscopy images with a small impact on fitting accuracy using lookup-tables with discrete xyz-positions. The algorithm realizes real-time visualization during acquisition. We demonstrate its performance on simulated and measured data. Additionally, combining real-time fitting with a feedback loop controlling the activation laser pulse keeps the number of emitters per image frame constant.
