Abstract

In this paper, we propose a method named region mosaicking on Laplacian pyramids (RMLP) to fuse multi-focus images that are captured by microscope. First, we apply the sum-modified Laplacian to measure the focus of multi-focus images. Then the density-based region growing algorithm is utilized to segment the focused region mask of each image. Finally, the mask is decomposed into a mask pyramid to supervise region mosaicking on a Laplacian pyramid. The region level pyramid keeps more original information than the pixel level. The experiment results show that RMLP has the best performance in quantitative comparison with other methods. In addition, RMLP is insensitive to noise and can reduce the color distortion of the fused images on two datasets.
