Abstract

A system for non-invasive hematological measurements includes a platform to receive a body portion of a user and an imaging device to acquire a set of images of a capillary bed in the body portion. For each image, a controller detects one or more capillaries in the body portion of the finger to identify a first set of capillaries by estimating one or more attributes of each capillary (e.g., structural attributes, flow attributes, imaging attributes, or combinations thereof), wherein at least one attribute of each capillary meets a predetermined criterion. The controller also identifies a second set of capillaries from the first set of capillaries such that each capillary of the second set of capillaries is visible in a predetermined number of images of the set of images.
