In quantum information and communication two fundamental nonclassical features that one exploits in harnessing the true power of composite quantum systems are the interference and quantum correlations. We show how a concept akin to interference can be connected to entanglement and quantum correlation. In particular, we prove that the difference in the squared visibility for the density operator before and after a complete measurement, averaged over all unitary evolutions, is related to the quantum correlation measure based on the measurement disturbance. For pure and mixed bipartite states the unitary average of the squared visibility is related to the entanglement measure. This may provide a method to detect entanglement and quantum correlation with quantum interference setups. Furthermore, we prove that for a fixed purity of the subsystem state, there is a complementarity relation between the linear entanglement of formation and the measurement disturbance. This brings out a quantitative difference between two kinds of quantum correlations and suggests that the origins of these two can be different.
