Abstract

The use of fluorescence video imaging to guide surgery is rapidly expanding, and improvements in camera readout dynamic range have not matched display capabilities. Logarithmic intensity compression is a fast, single-step mapping technique that can map the useable dynamic range of high-bit fluorescence images onto the typical 8-bit display and potentially be a variable dynamic contrast enhancement tool. We demonstrate a ∼4.6  times improvement in image quality quantified by image entropy and a dynamic range reduction by a factor of ∼380 by the use of log-compression tools in processing in vivo fluorescence images.
