Abstract
This paper presents a noninvasive evaluation system of fractured bone based on speckle interferometry using a modified evaluation index for higher performance, and the experiments are carried out to examine the feasibility in evaluating bone fracture healing and the influence of some system parameters on the performance. From experimental results, it is shown that the presence of fractured part of bone and the state of bone fracture healing are successfully estimated by observing fine speckle fringes on the object surface. The proposed evaluation index also can successfully express the difference between the cases with cut and without it. Since most system parameters are found not to affect the performance of the present technique, the present technique is expected to be applied to various patients that have considerable individual variability.
