abstract

When strong Jaundice is presented, babies or adults should be subject to clinical exam like “serum bilirubin” which can cause traumas in patients. Often jaundice is presented in liver disease such as hepatitis or liver cancer. In order to avoid additional traumas we propose to detect jaundice (icterus) in newborns or adults by using a not pain method. By acquiring digital images in color, in palm, soles and forehead, we analyze RGB attributes and diffuse reflectance spectra as the parameter to characterize patients with either jaundice or not, and we correlate that parameters with the level of bilirubin. By applying support vector machine we distinguish between healthy and sick patients. © (2014) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
