Realization of the Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE) for Real-Time Image Enhancement

  title={Realization of the Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE) for Real-Time Image Enhancement},
  author={Ali M. Reza},

Acquired real-time image sequences, in their original form may not have good viewing quality due to lack of proper lighting or inherent noise. For example, in X-ray imaging, when continuous exposure is used to obtain an image sequence or video, usually low-level exposure is administered until the region of interest is identified. In this case, and many other similar situations, it is desired to improve the image quality in real-time. One particular method of interest, which extensively is used… CONTINUE READING
