Efficient Analysis of Dynamic Images Using Plans
A wide variety of processes which are observed in experiments in medicine and biology are recorded on video tape or cine film as dynamic (moving) images. Analysis of these images, however, is a tedious task for human beings who must screen a large number of frames to discover the patterns of pertinent features and measure their parameters. In recent years, computer analysis of moving images, such as motion analysis of the heart as reported by Kaneko and Mancini (1973) and by Jong and Slager (1974) or of micro organisms (Greeves, 1975, and Ariki et al., 1977) has been investigated for the purpose of reducing human labor and extracting more reliable information.
