Colorimetric Matching for Medical Cameras

Jiyoung Yoon, Cheolhwan Kim, Shihyun Ahn
Abstract—While medical equipment and IT technology advances, doctors make medical surgery using input images through cameras. They use an optical microscope or an endoscope equipped with cameras. These systems display expanded images on a monitor for the required surgical sites. It is important to display almost the same color as the actual view, in case of making surgery or observing it. If monitors display wrong color, doctors cannot accurately recognize the surgical site and have difficulty to make a surgery, and surgery observers cannot get accurate information of the surgical site. In this paper, we proposed the characterization method for medical cameras using with the ColorChecker that is commonly used to calibrate cameras and additional color values on actual surgical site. It makes the estimated coefficient through polynomial regression. It can show surgical scenes to users more precisely.

Index Terms—Colorimetric matching, medical camera, camera characterization, CIELAB, coefficient estimation.
