Abstract

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is a promising tool for microscopic histopathology studies. Pushbroom microscopic hyperspectral imaging systems are widely used because of their low cost and easy implementation. However, the spatial resolution of pushbroom HSI systems is limited by the width of the optical entrance slit. A narrower slit leads to longer exposure time and slower imaging speed. In this paper, we explored several spatial resolution enhancement algorithms, originally designed for remote-sensing hyperspectral imaging, for pushbroom microscopic HSI systems. Our results demonstrate that those algorithms could effectively achieve a higher spatial resolution without sacrificing imaging speed.
