Observing specimen images at high magnification is often needed for histological analysis. Unfortunately, the higher the magnification, the more limited the field under observation. A single sample must be subdivided into several images, each representing a partial view, so that the global view and the geometrical correspondences among image components are missed. When using a conventional microscope, not equipped with a mechanical scanning mechanism, it is possible to overcome this drawback by exploited digital processing facilities. To this end, we have developed a method for high-magnification image reconstruction from partial views. Digital images of partial views from a single specimen are acquired and processed with image processing algorithms, in order to correct distortions and to eliminate overlapping. A global high-magnification image of the specimen is thus reconstructed.
