Abstract: This work presents an analysis of the performances for four different implementations used to compute laser speckle contrast on images. Laser speckle contrast is a widely used imaging technique for biomedical applications. These implementations were tested using synthetic laser speckle patterns with different resolutions, speckle sizes, and contrasts. From the applied methods, three implementations are already known in the literature. A new alternative is proposed herein, which relies on two-dimensional convolutions, in order to improve the image processing time without compromising the contrast assessment. The proposed implementation achieves a processing time two orders of magnitude lower than the analytical evaluation. The goal of this technical manuscript is to help the developers and researchers in computing laser speckle contrast images.
