Abstract

Images captured by laparoscopic cameras, often suffer from glare due to specular reflections from surgical tools and some tissue surfaces that can disturb the attention of surgeon. In this paper, inspired by their form, the photometric distortions caused by specular reflections are modeled as the superposition of a smooth and a pulse shaped curve. Based on this model a new fast technique for the detection and removal of glare in gray scale laparoscopic images is proposed. The proposed technique, as well as other state of the art image inpainting algorithms are used in a number of experiments based on artificial and real laparoscopic data, and the proposed algorithm seems to outperform its rivals.
