Paper Abstract

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) has been recognized as a powerful tool for noninvasive disease detection in the gastrointestinal field. However, most of the studies on HSI in this field have involved <italic<ex vivo</italic< biopsies or resected tissues. We proposed an image enhancement method based on <italic<in vivo</italic< hyperspectral gastroscopic images. First, we developed a flexible gastroscopy system capable of obtaining <italic<in vivo</italic< hyperspectral images of different types of stomach disease mucosa. Then, depending on a specific object, an appropriate band selection algorithm based on dependence of information was employed to determine a subset of spectral bands that would yield useful spatial information. Finally, these bands were assigned to be the color components of an enhanced image of the object. A gastric ulcer case study demonstrated that our method yields higher color tone contrast, which enhanced the displays of the gastric ulcer regions, and that it will be valuable in clinical applications.
