An additive retrospective non-parametric algorithm for the correction of the inhomogeneous intensity background of images, commonly known as shading, is presented. The algorithm assumed that an original unbiased image was corrupted by slowly-varying shading that could be estimated from the signal envelope in a process analogous to amplitude modulation detection. Unlike other filtering algorithms, the algorithm did not require pre-processing, parameter setting, user interaction, computationally intensive optimisation algorithms nor a restriction in size of the objects of interest relative to the scale of background variations. The algorithm provided satisfactory results for artificial and microscopical images.

The algorithm is completely automatic and the computational complexity is lower than the traditional techniques based on Entropy calculations. The article has been cited 6 times in 2 years.
