Abstract

The enhancement of skin image in optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging can help

propose an image enhancement technique including speckle reduction, attenuation compensation and cleaning to

noise while preserving the contrast. A novel border detection technique is designed to outline the main skin layers,

coefficient of epidermis and dermis layers and compensate the brightness of the structures at deeper levels. The

been evaluated visually and numerically using the commonly used no-reference quality metrics. The results shows

Keywords: Optical coherence tomography (OCT), Skin, Image enhancement, Speckle reduction, Attenuation

compensation.
