Comparative Analysis of Vein Detection Techniques

  • Pranoti Khollam
Keywords: Vein detection, image processing, injection


Currently in biomedical field a lots of techniques are available for vein detection. Various projects are also going on vein detection. Various image processing software are also being used by researchers. Vein puncture is commonly performed every day in hospitals. Both doctors & nurses facing difficulties in accessing veins in critical situations for giving drug through injections. Also during conflicts like war & catastrophe has shortage of experienced nurses & doctors. This paper viewed different approaches for vein detection using different technique. In this paper the vein image, working method along with block diagram, advantage, software used, results & further improvements for the techniques are compared.
