Assessment and Comparison of Colour Fidelity of Whole Slide Imaging Scanners

The aim of this work is to develop a colourimetrically justified method for determination of colour fidelity of WSI scanners. We measure the absolute accuracy of colour reproduction and assess the scanner’s ability to resolve similar colours, which seems to be even more important for diagnostic and research tasks. Along this, some theoretical background is given which helps in understanding of common sources of failures in colour reproduction. The work was done in the framework of 2-nd and 3-rd International Scanner Contest. We hope this publication will be useful for scanner manufactures as well as for academical and clinical users.
