pseudocoloring

pseudocoloring

[‚süd·ō′kəl·ər·iŋ]
(computer science)
A method of assigning arbitrary colors to the gray levels of a black-and-white image. It is popular in thermography (the imaging of heat), where hotter objects (with high pixel values) are assigned one color (for example, red), and cool objects (with low pixel values) are assigned another color (for example, blue), with other colors assigned to intermediate values.

The intensity of autofluorescence, green (550 nm) and red (610 nm) reflectance images, was provided for pseudocoloring. An image processor makes autofluorescence images to green color, the green reflectance image to red color, and the red reflectance image to blue color, then AFI pseudocolored images were composited.
Color processing includes color space transformations, pseudocoloring, and hue and saturation adjustments.
Pseudocoloring was performed by inverting the matrix conversion process presented by Ruifrok and Johnston.
Pseudocoloring and overlaying of the emission channels were performed with Adobe Photoshop (Version 7.0, Adobe, San Jose, California); however, no other manipulation of the images was involved.
