Paper Abstract

The paper presents the effects of the work aiming to build a device for spatial visualization of hypodermic blood vessels. The device was built using illuminators radiating polarized light of wavelength λ = 850 nm and two cameras in a stereoscopic set up equipped with polarizers and interference transmission filters, matched to illuminators. Images captured by cameras were analyzed by software that increases the contrast of blood vessels and extracts information about the distance from the hypodermic blood vessels to cameras. In this way the extracted course of blood vessels is recorded in the widely used in medicine DICOM format.
