In medical applications of digital imaging not only the spatial resolution of digitized images but also the reproduction of colors are potential problems. To eliminate erroneous color reproduction, we are developing a new system in which the color data of an image, the illuminant conditions and the characteristics of each input device are collected simultaneously and are used to correct colors to be observed uniformly under different illumination.
