Abstract

In this paper, a nonradioactive and noninvasive blood vessels image system based on NIR technique was presented for estimating the physiological parameters of the blood vessels, such as blood vessel width (BVW), blood vessel width ratio (BVWR) and blood vessel fractal dimension (BVFD). Our results showed the feasibility of quantifying the vasculature on human extremities using the NIR images.
