  • Abstract Watercore is an internal disorder that appears as water-soaked, glassy regions near the core in apples. Fast and non-destructive solutions for sensing watercore would be readily accepted in the postharvest industry. X-ray CT and MRI were compared as potential imaging technologies for detecting this particular disorder. After matching the 3D datasets of X-ray CT and MRI, the images that were obtained on identical fruit were compared quantitatively. Both MRI and CT were able to detect… CONTINUE READING
