PARAFAC CLASSIFICATION OF LAMB CARCASS SOFT TISSUES IN COMPUTER TOMOGRAPHY (CT) IMAGE STACKS

Jørgen Kongsro

Abstract

Computer Tomography is shown to be an efficient and cost-effective tool for classification and segmentation of soft tissues in animal carcasses. By using 15 fixed anatomical sites based on vertebra columns, 120 lamb carcasses were CT scanned in Norway during autumn of 2005. Frequency distributions of CT values (HU [-200,200]) of soft tissues from each image were obtained. This yielded a 3-way data set (120 samples * 400 CT values * 15 anatomical sites). The classification of the soft tissues was done by multi way Parallel Factor Analysis (PARAFAC), which resulted in 3 components or soft tissues classified from the images; fat, marbled and lean muscle tissue.
