In the process of image acquisition, the contrast between veins and non-veins in finger vein images is not high due to the influence of the fuzzy light source, skin scattering and finger movement. To solve this problem, a finger vein image enhancement method is proposed (GTGFs), which enhances finger vein patterns by setting guided image as input image firstly. On this basis, the tri-Gaussian model is based on disinhibitory properties of the concentric receptive field used to locally enhancing

The experiment results show that the proposed enhancement method can significantly enhance the finger vein patterns and improve the recognition effect of the methods based on vein pattern segmentation.
