Currently there is no available system capable of providing real-time absolute dimensional analysis of features within the field of view of conventional angioscopes. This paper describes a method which utilizes computer-based image processing equipment and novel algorithms to address this problem. By analyzing the magnification characteristics of an angioscope and analyzing any single feature from multiple angioscopic views, the cross-sectional area of the feature may be calculated. Experimental results indicate both a high accuracy and the feasibility of this approach.
