Abstract: Instead of expensive and complicated diagnostic equipment, low-cost infrared cameras can record vein images noninvasively and simply. However, the recorded image may induce low contrast and a worse signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio. To solve this problem, an effective image filtering method to catch vein shapes will enable the early detection of disease. Therefore, a new filtering method based on the genetic algorithm (GA) with the expectation maximization (EM) algorithm was proposed for the analysis of vein images acquired from a near-infrared (780 nm) CCD camera. The new filter was automatically designed by the GA to modify the worse S/N ratio of vein images, with an unknown correct image answer. If the proposed filtering method is incorporated into the e-healthcare application, it could be widely distributed through smart phones or tablets.
