Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel fusion method which is based on background brightness adjustment for multiple medical microscopic images. In this process, the background of each microscopic image is separated using the intensity histogram of the image in HSI color space firstly. The ratio and the difference between a selected reference intensity and the average background intensity of each image are calculated. Then, according to the ratio and the difference, the intensity and the saturation of each image are adjusted respectively. Finally, the overlap region between adjacent images is fused by linearly variable weights in RGB color space. The results of experiments indicate that the method can availably remove the differences in brightness and color between images, and generate a satisfactory mosicked image.
