Image warping in dermatological image hair removal
The paper focuses on solving the problem of hair removal in dermatology applications. The proposed hair removal algorithm is based on Gabor filtering and PDE-based image reconstruction. It also includes the edge sharpening stage using a new warping algorithm. The idea of warping is to move pixels from the neighborhood of the blurred edge closer to the edge. The proposed technique preserves the overall luminosity and textures of the image, while making the edges sharper and less noisy.
