Abstract

With the advancement of minimally invasive techniques for surgical and diagnostic procedures, there is a growing need for the development of methods for improved visualization of internal body structures. Video mosaicking is one method for doing this. This approach provides a broader field of view of the scene by stitching together images in a video sequence. Of particular importance is the need for online processing to provide real-time feedback and visualization for image-guided surgery and diagnosis. We propose a method for online video mosaicking applied to endoscopic imagery, with examples in microscopic retinal imaging and catadioptric endometrial imaging.
