Abstract
The stereophotogrammetric analysis of biological forms in medicine has been usefully employed for many years. Generally the methods adopted have involved the use of stereo pairs of traditional photographs or radiographs. Although very successful, the traditional methods are time consuming. Developments in solid state and videoscan cameras, in computer hardware and in image processing technology have lead to Real-time photogrammetry (RTP) or near Real-time photogrammetry (NRTP). It is anticipated that RTP and NRTP will play a vital role in biostereometric studies. This paper discusses the development of a low cost PC-based NRTP system and the possibility of using NRTP in an ongoing biostereometric study which has been developed for studying regional body surface motion in the evaluation of respiratory muscle function and in which digital cameras will be substituted for analogue cameras and computer digitisation will be substituted for manual observation.
