For medical diagnoses and treatments, basic and clear information, including heart rate, blood pressure, X-ray imagery, etc., of a subject is essential. Thus, a huge amount of sensing technologies have been researched, developed, and commercialized. Among the wide variety of available sensors (e.g., electromagnetic (i.e., MRI), radiation- based (i.e., X-ray), and ultrasound), active-lighting-based techniques have recently drawn a great deal of attention because of their noninvasive methods and simple configurations. In this chapter, a 3D endoscope system using structured light and a noncontact heartbeat detection system is described.
