Abstract

To compensate for the imperfections of the endoscopic mechanical structure and the limitations of working space, a new technology based on the recursive minimum/maximum method is proposed to enlarge images obtained by the medical electronic endoscope. This method can be used repeatedly to obtain image enlargement to 2× by optimizing the neighborhood information of the pixels of interest in adjustable windows. In order to ensure the best evaluation of the pixel, the algorithm criterion is presented to decide whether the new gray value is assigned to the pixel. Experimental results from enlarged endoscopic images are presented that demonstrate that the recursive minimum/maximum method for image enlargement can preserve the fine details with rich edge information and with better visualization.
