Author Affiliations +
Computer image processing techniques have been used in the past to transforni radiant energy information into images. These techniques have allowed the user to spatially improve the information and assemble an infrared energy map of their subject. With the addition of complex conversion algorithms, these radiant energy pictures have been converted into temperature maps. Often the user is interested in a performing an analysis that is a function of the temperature as opposed to temperature itself. With conventional image processing systems, the user must still rely on either experience or other processing algorithms to interpret the information that the thermogram is representing. This paper discusses recent software advances which allow the user to continue the transformation process from radiant energy to desired end result.
