ITKImageProcessing (ITKImageProcessing)

Description

This filter sharpens an image using a Laplacian. LaplacianSharpening highlights regions of rapid intensity change and therefore highlights or enhances the edges. The result is an image that appears more in focus.

\par The LaplacianSharpening at each pixel location is computed by convolution with the itk::LaplacianOperator .

\par Inputs and Outputs The input to this filter is a scalar-valued itk::Image of arbitrary dimension. The output is a scalar-valued itk::Image .
