1 February 1975 Computerized Image Analysis at the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory
Author Affiliations +
The Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) maintains an active and broad program of computerized image analysis. Initially begun as an image enhancement adjunct to a flash radiographic facility, the base of experience has now been expanded to include medical and industrial radiography, astronomical observations, and high-speed framing camera images. In addition to classical image enhancement and restoration, there is now activity in precision high-speed data extraction, often as an end in itself without the need for the analyst to view the image once it is digitized and supplied to the computer. Examples of various applications are given. In order to support these activities LASL has developed a library of image analysis subroutines, and is now developing a user-oriented command language. A substantial hardware installation has been developed. An active research program for development of new digital techniques of image restoration is maintained.
