Title: SYSTEM METHOD AND COMPUTER-ACCESSIBLE MEDIUM FOR QUANTIFICATION OF BLUR IN DIGITAL IMAGES
Abstract:
The present disclosure discusses systems and methods to detect blur in digital images. The solution can be incorporated into the quality control systems of pathology and other slide scanners or can be a stand-alone solution. The solution can identify scanned images that include blur and cause the scanner to automatically rescan the blurry image. The solution can also identify regions of the scanned image that include blur. The solution can generate blur maps for each of the scanned images that identify regions of the scanned image that include blur.
