Paper Abstract

Air sacculitis is a common disease present in industrially processed poultry. It is manifested as a yellow exhudate attached to the body cavity of the bird. Taking advantage of this change in coloration, we propose a color codification that transforms the RGB color components into the complex plain and, therefore, feign an optical field. Optical correlation is then simulated to identify and localize the diseased tissue in images ofchickens previously infected with different degrees ofthe disease. Because the extension ofthe yellow exhudate can be visualized, an assessment ofthe disease can be performed. The possibility of opto-electronical implementation is discussed.
