Nowadays, the personal identification plays a very important role in a wide variety of fields, including financial business, office security, criminal investigation and forensic science. This study aims to evaluate the patterns of arm vein patterns for personal identification. Veinviewer®, a near-infrared vein visualization device, was applied in this study to illuminate the vein patterns in the arm of patients. The vein patterns were captured from one hundred twenty volunteers from their upper extremity, two shots at different times of not less than 1 month. The image data of their vein patterns were performed and analyzed by pixel to pixel mapping for the comparison. The comparing results showed the similarity rate of same people and the distinction rate between different people are in the range of 69.48 to 95.33 % and 1.47 to 84.43 %, respectively. The threshold of mapping accuracy was defined at 70.03 %. The false rejection rate (FRR) and false acceptation rate (FAR) were between 69.48 and 95.33 %, 1.47 and 84.43 %, respectively. Conclusively, it should be noted that the arm vein pattern technique is significantly effective for personal identification.
