Abstract: Due to multiple distortion effects, confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) images of even homogeneous specimen regions suffer from irregular brightness variations. In this paper, a fast correction method based on estimating a spatially variable illumination gain, and multiplying acquired CLSM images by the inverse of the estimated gain, is presented. The method does not require any special calibration (reference) images since the gain estimate is extracted from the CLSM image being corrected itself. The proposed approach exploits two types of morphological filters: the median filter and a morphological operator called the upper Lipschitz cover
Keywords: CLSM; illumination inhomogeneities
