This book deals with Image Processing and Image Analysis, which are rapidly evolving technologies in measurement of non-electrical data. The main reason for this is the relative cost-effectiveness of a system consisting of a camera and a PC equipped with Image Processing and Analysis Software. On the other hand, new technologies require new methods and algorithms. This book describes not only the basic methods of Image Processing and Analysis, but also key issues related to image generation and image distribution, which may effect the entire measuring process. National Instruments, the "Measurement Company", provides with LabVIEW and IMAQ Vision, tools for constructing these algorithms, which are a breakthrough in computer more

Back cover copy

The definitive tutorial on desktop image processing with NI's IMAQ Vision This book brings together everything you need to achieve superior results with PC-based image processing and analysis. Expert Thomas Klinger combines a highly accessible overview of the field's key concepts, tools, and techniques; the first expert introduction to NI's breakthrough IMAQ Vision software; and several start-to-finish application case studies. You also get an extensive library of code and image samples, as well as a complete trial version of IMAQ Vision for Windows(r). Coverage includes: Defining what to measure and how to measure it Acquiring images: working with CCDs, cameras, frame grabber cards, and leading medical image sources, including ultrasound, CT, and MRI Distributing images: compression techniques, image format standards, and DICOM medical imaging Processing images: gray-scale operations, spatial image filtering, frequency filtering, and morphology functions Analyzing images: pixel value and quantitative analyses, shape and pattern matching, bar codes, and more With 300+ figures and 50+ exercises-all listed up front for easy access-this is the definitive image processing tutorial for every more
