30 March 1995 Digital analysis of the fringe pattern images from biomedical objects
Author Affiliations +
Recent developments in optical, optoelectronic, and digital electronic imaging and metrology are creating opportunities for a new type of diagnostics methods and systems. Some of these techniques, established already in the field of technical and industrial non-destructive testing, have increasingly gained importance in biomedical research and may enter the clinical scene, as well. Even the laboratory investigations can have strong impact for further developments in this field. However, in experimental medicine the quantitative analysis of experimental data is sometimes required. When applying different interferometric methods, the obtained results are in the form of fringe pattern images. In this paper some of these methods, including holographic interferometry, laser interferometry and moire techniques are described and illustrated by experimental results. For acquisition and evaluation of the fringe pattern images, the Bioscan Optimas package from Bioscan, Incorporated of Edmonds, Wash., running under Microsoft Windows was used.
