 The detection and visualization of blood vessels is an important task for practical medical treatment. The authors have developed the algorithms for blood vessel problems and a 3D blood vessel visualization of a human arm (or leg) in a real time based on medical ultrasound sensor signals. The proposed technique provides a software basis for an auto cuff to stop internal bleeding which is being designed now.
The algorithms are based on digital image processing and pattern recognition methods.
Keywords: medical image processing, pattern recognition, 3D reconstruction, blood vessel visualization, polygonal models.
