Abstract
In the imaging of blood concentration change using near infrared bio-speckles, temporal averaging of speckle images is necessary for speckle reduction. To improve the temporal resolution in blood concentration imaging, use of spatial averaging is investigated to measured data in rat experiments. Results show that three frames in temporal averaging with (2×2) pixels in spatial averaging can be accepted to obtain the temporal resolution of ten concentration images per second.
