How Machine Vision Cameras Help Medicine
In our White Paper we explore the role that Machine Vision (MV) cameras play in today's medical applications, which factors matter most in selecting the right camera for medicine and why color fidelity is especially crucial in this field. The importance of sensor technology is also discussed.
For many medical applications, cameras are now considered an essential component. Yet the huge selection of sensors and interfaces means that it's not always easy to determine which camera is right for that specific application. Both application-specific and more general factors can influence this decision.
To support the selection process, the authors of this white paper — Basler Product Managers Peter Behringer and Denis Dettmer:
describe seven camera criteria that should be considered when making the decision.
provide ten reasons why MV cameras are outstandingly well suited for medical use.
summarize, in seven essential points, why modern CMOS sensor technology is continuing to grow more attractive for use in the medicine and life sciences fields.
