We propose and implement a high-quality three-dimensional (3D) display system for an integral imaging microscope using a simplified direction-inversed computation method based on user interaction. A model of the specimen is generated from the estimated depth information (via the convolutional neural network-based algorithm), the quality of the model is defined by the high-resolution two-dimensional image. The new elemental image arrays are generated from the models via a simplified direction-inversed computation method according to the user interaction and directly displayed on the display device. A high-quality 3D visualization of the specimen is reconstructed and displayed while the lens array is placed in front of the display device. The user interaction enables more viewpoints of the specimen to be reconstructed by the proposed system, within the basic viewing zone. Remarkable quality improvement is confirmed through quantitative evaluations of the experimental results.
