Paper Abstract

Adaptive histogram equalization is a contrast enhancement technique in which each pixel is remapped to an intensity proportional to its rank among surrounding pixels in a selected neighborhood. We present work in which adaptive histogram equalization is performed on the codebook of a tree-structured vector quantizer so that encoding with the resulting codebook performs both compression and contrast enhancement. The algorithm was tested on magnetic resonance brain scans from different subjects and the resulting images were significantly contrast enhanced.
