Live and in Color: Why Color Calibration is So Important in Medical Technology
In our article “What Role Does Color Play in Image Processing?” we already explained the role of color reproduction in machine vision. While monochrome images often suffice for industrial image processing, very different types of image information are used in Medical and Life Sciences, which is why color fidelity plays such an important role here.
In the areas of microscopy, dermatology and ophthalmology, digitally captured 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.
