                         iterative restoration of microscope images. The method is based on 
                         a sequence of subtractions performed in the beginning of an 
                         iterative restoration procedure. A series of experiments using 
                         background intensity detection methods were carried out in order 
                         to analyse the influence of a correct estimation of the 
                         background. The restoration results as a function of the detected 
                         background value is discussed. The results indicates a strong 
                         influence of the estimate on the restoration of images. When 
                         compared to an optimal errorbased method, the proposed method was 
                         faster and obtained a good approximation to the correct value.",
