An algorithm for automatic segmentation of beef longissimus dorsi (LD) muscle and marbling has been developed. The algorithm used simple thresholding to remove the background and then used clustering and thresholding with contrast enhancement via a customised greyscale to remove marbling. It was possible to attain lean muscle free of obvious marbling or… CONTINUE READING
