- ... Optical spectral reflectance and multi-spectral image analysis techniques were investigated to characterize chicken hearts for real-time disease detection. Spectral signatures of five categories of chicken hearts (airsacculitis, ascites, normal, cadaver, and septicemia) were obtained from optical reflectance measurements taken with a visible/near-infrared spectroscopic system in the range 473 to 9 ...
