Yes, this is how I designed VueScan's Infrared clean filter. It only
smooths the image in the neighborhood of dust spots.
However, I suspect you'll find that NikonScan 3.1 filters the image
a lot less than older versions of NikonScan on the LS-30 and LS-2000.

VueScan occasionally sees image detail as small bits of dust
with Kodachrome. It's usually in the darkest parts of the image,
where there's already little image detail.
