Live and in Color: Why Color Calibration Is So Important in Medical Technology
Monochrome images are sufficient for many Machine Vision applications. For Medical and Life Sciences applications, however, the situation is very different: the color fidelity of the digitally captured images plays a special role here.
In the areas of microscopy, dermatology and ophthalmology, these images are particularly effective aids in the diagnostic process. The color is often an important criterion to evaluate whether a structure is healthy or pathological.
Using a practical example, our Vision Campus article shows why the color fidelity of these images is so important and explain what should be considered in the color calibration of cameras.
Check out the Vision Campus for many other articles and videos on interesting topics all about vision technology in Medical and Life Sciences. In the fictional Basler Medical Center, we show the various ways cameras can be used in medicine . We explain the most important benefits in even more detail in the accompanying video . We also show you how cameras contribute to lab automation .
