MATLAB AND ITS USE FOR PROCESSING OF THERMOGRAMS


Thermograms or better said images from thermal cameras belong to the outputs which are useful for analysis and evaluation of biological or technological systems, which have their own heat radiation. It can be used in many areas, mainly either in industry, army, architecture or and what is important in our case in medicine. This data outputs are carrying the information, which are in next phases analyzed and processed to a final or expected form. This processing can be done in more software applications, which are not only for thermograms. One of these suitable and significant applications is MATLAB. This program working on a base of matrix algorithm and with required toolbox can analyze and process the images. The main goal was to fill the problematic of processing thermograms in MATLAB and the related methodology of experiment design and its verification on a practical base. Also this methodology can be used like a guide for less or more advanced end users of MATLAB, which are working concretely with image processing toolbox.
