The Thermographic Signal Reconstruction (TSR) method has gained widespread acceptance for its ability to enhance flaw detection and quantitative measurement capabilities in active thermography through the use of logarithmic derivatives. However, in practice, analysis of TSR data often involves viewing an entire reconstructed image sequence as a movie, in order to identify regions of anomalous cooling behavior. In most cases, it is possible to convey all of the essential sequence information in
