Abstract
Nowadays, the stereoscopic endoscopy is a widely used tool for precise three-dimensional (3D) measurements of hard-to-reach elements in industrial and biomedical applications. The most common approach for its implementation is the utilization of prism-based optical tips which allow to acquire two images from different viewpoints on a single sensor. Stereo video endoscopes are typically equipped with a wideband white light source, but contrast visualization of the inspected object and, therefore, accurate quantitative characterization of its parameters often requires narrow band spectral imaging. We show that the standard geometrical calibration may lead to significant measurement errors when obtained using white illumination and applied to narrow band images. In order to overcome this, we propose the new calibration procedure based on a proper choice of a few spectral bands for calibration and interpolation of the calculated parameters. Results of multiple experiments show that the proposed technique fosters the measurement accuracy increase.
