Reconstruction of Fish Bones through Stereoscopic X-Ray Tomography
MetadataShow full item record
Fish bone removal is, for the purposes of food safety, a relevant concern for thefishing industry. The process of filleting is traditionally a manual process, althoughfully automatic solutions have been brought to market over time. Some methodssuccessfully use X-ray for accurately determining the locations of bones. It hasthus far not been attempted to reconstruct fish bones in three dimensions. Thiswork therefore aims to answer the question to which degree it is possible to re-construct fish bones in three dimensions from a pair of stereoscopic X-ray linescan images for the purpose of industrial fish cutting. A mathematical abstrac-tion of the scanner is created, and used to accurately reconstruct fish bones inthree dimensions. Moreover, a separate method for addressing a range of issuesrelated to noise is created. The results of these methods yield the conclusion thata method can be created which addresses the accuracy and noise requirements ofan industrial context.
