Abstract
A spatial-scanning pushbroom hyperspectral imaging (HSI) system incorporating a video camera (VC) which is not only used for direct video imaging but also for the selection of the region of interest within the VC’s full field-of-view is presented. Using a VC for these two applications brings many benefits to a pushbroom HSI system, such as a minimized data acquisition time and smaller data storage requirement. A detailed description of the system followed by the methods and formulas used for calibration and electronic hardware interfacing were discussed and analyzed using United States Air Force resolution chart, chicken breast tissue, and fluorescent targets as test samples. The proposed concepts and developed system can find potential biomedical imaging applications and can be extended to endoscopic imaging applications as well.
