Capsule endoscopy, using a wireless camera to capture the digestive track, is becoming a popular alternative to traditional colonoscopy. [] Key ResultTechnol.2017.61.4.040402] INTRODUCTION Capsule video endoscopy has proven to be a powerful tool for diagnosis of the digestive tract diseases. It has many advantages over traditional colonoscopy,1 as being less invasive, the lack of a requirement for sedation, and no need for gas insufflation. Also, since it is less invasive it might also increase participation…

Advanced Image Enhancement Method for Distant Vessels and Structures in Capsule Endoscopy

The proposed method (PM) combines two algorithms for the enhancement of darker and brighter areas of capsule endoscopic images, respectively, and concluded that the PM enhanced images were the best ones based on the information about the vessels, contrast in the images, and the view or visibility of the structures in more distant parts of the capsule endoscope images.

Image Quality Assessment without Reference by Combining Deep Learning-Based Features and Viewing Distance

A novel image quality metric able to estimate the quality of a given image without reference for different viewing distances between the image and the observer is introduced.

Endoscopic Vision Augmentation Using Multiscale Bilateral-Weighted Retinex for Robotic Surgery

A multiscale bilateral-weighted retinex method is proposed to remove non-uniform and highly directional illumination and enhance surgical vision and an objective no-reference image visibility assessment method is defined in terms of sharpness, naturalness, and contrast, to quantitatively and objectively evaluate the endoscopic visualization on surgical video sequences.

An improved algorithm of multi-exposure image fusion by detail enhancement

A new multi-exposure image fusion algorithm with detail enhancement based on pyramid decomposition is proposed that can preserve more details than the state-of-the-art and could produce a more realistic brightness distribution of target scene as well as avoid halo artifacts.

An improved algorithm of multi-exposure image fusion by detail enhancement

Multi-exposure image fusion is an effective method for depicting high dynamic range of the target scene in a single image. However, there are still some problems remaining: the preserving of global

Narrow-Band Imaging in Digestive Endoscopy

Narrow Band Imaging (NBI), consists of using interference filters for the illumination of the target in narrowed blue and green bands of the spectrum, with a specific application to the identification of intestinal metaplasia and early neoplastic changes in the Barrett's esophagus.

Capsule endoscopy with flexible spectral imaging color enhancement reduces the bile pigment effect and improves the detectability of small bowel lesions

CE-FICE may reduce the bile-pigment effect and improve the detectability of small-bowel lesions by CE trainees; the reliability of CE-F ICE may be improved by good bowel preparation.

Color Enhancement in Endoscopic Images Using Adaptive Sigmoid Function and Space Variant Color Reproduction

The color similarity test has proved that the proposed method does not add any additional color which is not present in the original image, and the algorithm has low complexity with an execution speed faster than other related methods.

Application of the real-time Retinex image enhancement for endoscopic images

In order to efficiently reduce the computational cost required for image enhancement, processing layers and repeat counts of iterations are determined in accordance with software evaluation result, and as for processing architecture, the pipelining architecture can handle high resolution pictures in real-time.
