Paper Abstract

Dynamic speckle is a useful technique to show biological tissue activity and evolving processes in industry. There are several algorithms for quantitative and qualitative characterization of dynamic speckle. We use the statistical method receiver operating characteristic (ROC) to compare some speckle algorithms. We estimate the capacity of these descriptors to discriminate different activities and the smallest number of images necessary for a correct description of the phenomena. We also use the ROC curves to estimate the best conditions required by some activities. The results are verified using an activity image.
