Paper Abstract

A thermography based cutaneous blood flow monitoring system prototype for physiological studies and micro surgery was constructed. The prototype has already been used to analyze blood flow during several operations and physiological experiments. The system filters raw frames from a far IR camera and compresses them, so that we can store images into a small fraction of the original size for filing and later inspection by our system or other suitable Windows programs. Multicolor display combined to image enhancement filtering substantially helps clinical personnel in the interpretation of thermal image information.
