Interpolation is a method that is used to obtain unknown intensities with the help of known intensities on an image. This method is frequently used in the literature to eliminate light reflection on colonoscopy images. Texture features are the most important characteristics used to describe the region or objects of interest in the image. They are the measures of intensity variation of a surface that determine properties such as smoothness, roughness, and regularity. The aim of this study is to find out the how bilinear interpolation applied on colonoscopy images with reflection impact texture features obtained from the same images. A research carried out to make reasonable comparison between a texture feature from an image with no reflection and the same feature obtained from the same image with synthetically added reflections with various percentages. Using the approaches like gray level co-occurence matrix (GLCM), gray level run length matrix (GLRLM), neighborhood gray tone difference matrix (NGTDM) 126 features were extracted from each 32x32 sub-images coming from 610 colonoscopy images. Several of the features extracted from sub-images with no reflection and reflection were not statistically significantly different, while majority of them were affected from the reflections.
