A versatile video image analysis system for microcirculatory research

Int J Microcirc Clin Exp. 1988 Nov;7(4):327-45.


A modular image analysis system is presented consisting of a personal computer equipped with a real time video digitizer, an interactive control unit and a graphic tablet. Together with the corresponding software modules this system can be used for a number of image processing procedures in microcirculatory research including image enhancement, measurement of morphological parameters and image brightness as well as determination of vessel diameter and blood flow velocity.
