The present paper describes a method for autofocusing specifically studied for the acquisition of digital slides, i.e. full histologic and cytologic slides, utilising low-cost equipment. At first, experimentations with some of the most used focus measures and algorithms have been made, in order to choose the most suitable for histologic and cytologic images. Then, a study of the specific features of digital slides has been preliminarily carried out in order to understand the constraints of the… CONTINUE READING
